Ghost House Walk Trail is a 12.4km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in Yanchep National Park Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 4hrs to complete.

Summary

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. Along the way you will encounter the sights and sounds of the pristine wetlands and discover the historic remains of the ‘Ghost House’.

Join the trail via the boaRoad-walked Wetlands Trail which skirts North Lake and takes you through the wetlands area which is teaming with Bird life. Keep an eye out for the Yanget (bullrush) used by local Noongar people for food. The Ghost House Walk Trail offers plenty of interst and variety as it passes through tuart forest, banksia woodlands and coastal heath. The trail ends at Cabaret Cave and is a short walk back to the hub of Yanchep where you can stop for a coffee, refreshing ale or lunch. One of the draw caRoads of Yanchep is the koala Boardwalk.  Koalas are fussy eaters and only eat certain types of eucalyptus leaves.  They are not native to Western Australia and Yanchep is one of the few places you can see them.  You’ll pass through the koala feed plantation on your way from McNess House to the start of the trail. Yanchep National Park is a hub of walk trails of varying length and difficulty.  After completing your walks, why not hire a boat to row over the lake (seasonal), take a guided tour of the caves, visit the koalas or enjoy a barbeque in the park amongst the kangaroos.
