Cockatoo Walk Trail is a 17.5km, grade 3 circuit hike, located in Yanchep National Park, Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 5hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

A 17.5 kilometre loop walk through the coastal plain vegetation of Yanchep National Park.  It passes through Ridge’s campsite from the Coastal Plain Trail and in spring offers a carpet of wildflowers.  Kangaroos, the black gloved wallaby and quenda, along with Carnaby’s black cockatoos, may be spotted.
The trail, marked with posts bearing the cockatoo symbol, departs from the McNess Visitor Centre. Several kilometres after it crosses Wanneroo Road, it forks and forms a circular route, connecting with the Coastal Plain Trail for about 5km. The trail is through coastal vegetation, with little tree cover, so is not suited to summer walking. The track can also become sandy underfoot. During spring the wildflowers are spectacular.
