Lodge Review: Yanchep Inn, Western Australia

Nothing beats staying in a National Park such as Yanchep to have the best access to early morning birding.  It’s so easily reached from Perth too!

The reception area and adjacent restaurant have a warm safari lodge feel to them.  You can get budget priced meal-of-the-day or order from a nice selection on the menu at higher prices.IMG_6619 IMG_6645a

Cars can be parked reasonably close to the units so you don’t have to carry your bags far.IMG_6544 IMG_6545


This was our room, we could see lots of birds just sitting on the patio like Carnaby’s Cockatoos flying overhead and Splendid Fairy-wrens hopping around the bushes.IMG_6550

Everything you need is here including a toaster and mini-fridge.  Not fancy but with all the wildlife around you won’t be spending much time in your room.IMG_6549Fancier rooms with spa bath and lake views are available if you are after a romantic getaway with a side dish of nature!

The Lakeview rooms are the newest addition to our accommodation. All rooms contain King Size beds, are air-conditioned, contain a television, bar fridge and large bathrooms. The Ensuites are fitted with a walk in Shower in the Standards or a Bath with Spa jets in our Spa rooms. All Lakeview rooms have either a Balcony or Veranda overlooking the Kangaroos and Loch McNess.

Whatever you choose, try to spend a couple days here to take in all the birds and just relax.  Rooms are easily booked online.
