After a short 45-minute drive north of Perth, you’ll find the gorgeous coastal suburb of Yanchep. Here you’ll find a plethora of things to do, from pristine saltwater swimming to bushwalks and even a lavender farm you can wander through and take some snaps at. Yanchep makes for the perfect day trip, or even a weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle.
On a hot day, Yanchep Lagoon makes for the perfect swimming spot. With crystal-clear waters right on shores of the beach, lagoon accommodates swimmers and snorkellers alike. Come here early on a hot day and spend the morning soaking up the rays and floating in the salty water.
After grabbing some lunch at Orion Café (which is right on the beachfront near the Lagoon), head out to Yanchep Lavender Farm. Not only can you wander through the lavender fields and get some awesome pics, but you can also buy some lavender-infused goodies from their on-site shop. We’re talking essential oils, beauty and cleaning products, as well as candles and even a house made lavender ice cream you can try.
If you want even more out of your day, you can head out to Yanchep National Park for a bushwalks, or go explore the Yanchep Crystal Cave.
