Ghost House Walk Trail, Yanchep National Park

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The Ghost House Walk Trail takes you on a journey to discover the natural and cultural history of the wilderness areas in Yanchep National Park, an hour north of Perth. The moderate 12.4-kilometre loop Top Trail allows trail users to encounter the sights and sounds of the calming wetlands and discover the historic remains of the ‘Ghost House’.

Join the trail via the Wetlands Walk Trail that weaves its way around Loch McNess. Wetlands, Tuart forest, Banksia woodlands and coastal heath provide plenty of interest and variety.

The trail ends at McNess House Visitor Centre in the main recreation area. Only a short walk to Chocolate Drops for a coffee or the Yanchep Inn for a refreshing ale or lunch.

Turn this into a 2-day walk by taking your swag and spending a night under the stars at Shapcotts campsite, nestled under a grove of grand old Tuart trees.

Yanchep National Park is a hub of walk trails of varying length and difficulty. For your safety please sign in and out at McNess House Visitor Centre before adventuring out on the trails.
