Yalgorup National Park

Yalgorup National Park covers an area of over 12,000 hectares. The park contains 11 coastal lakes and wetlands which are home to hundreds of migrating birds, some of which have travelled thousands of kilometres to breed and recuperate amongst the areas' rich eco systems. There are hides and viewing platforms, a boardwalk and several walk trails for everyone to enjoy.

The park also boasts several stands of rare Tuart trees and some of the first living creatures on earth - the captivating Thrombolites at Lake Clifton. The most striking things about the thrombolites are their limestone colour and rounded shape. The thrombolite-building micro-organisms are too small for the human eye to see and resemble the earliest forms of life on Earth. Visitors can follow the boardwalk to view these living rock-like structures. 

Preston Beach at the southern end of the park is a superb location for four-wheel driving, swimming, picnicking or fishing from its pristine white sandy shores. There is also a popular 9-hole golf course, children's playground, free BBQs, and a range of accommodation options.
