"Capricorn Estate, Yanchep. Great lifestyle and views."

Close to beach, ocean views, lovely neighbours, boat harbour, golf coarse, national park with wildlife away from the rat race. Many new facilities and a new shopping centre being built and plans for rail station in the works. We love this place.

"A great place to kick back and relax"

With the Yanchep National park, Yanchep Lagoon and Sun City Golf Course, all the lovely parks and playgrounds that are being built its a great place to bring up the family. Where we live the only noise you hear are the black cockatoos and the odd kangeroo coming for a hop up the street is not unusual!!

"Get away from it all."

Want to get away from the rat race but still be with in easy reach of a major centre? Yanchep is 45 kms north of Perth and is joined to the town of Two Rocks here there are some beautiful unspoilt beaches and is near Yanchep National Park with its unique vegetation and wildlife. There are also caves and Aboriginal heritage sites. Locals and visitors to the area can also enjoy swimming, fishing, bushwalking and diving etc. there are some good restaurants here and a café as well as shopping facilities for your basic needs and being so close to the major shopping centres in Perth is a definite bonus when in need of major retail therapy. There is a pre primary to secondary school and medical facilities are close at hand. Being out of the city environment you will find Yanchep a very friendly and community minded place and real estate prices her are moderate for both rental and purchases. Many people use this area as a weekend or holiday destination and are in awe of those lucky enough to live here permanently.

"A small coastal town north of Perth. Not a lot offer, buy why?"

It almost seems strange that Yanchep is not more popular. It is only 45 minutes drive north from Perth and I could never understand why more people did not go there. Sure it does not offer some of the more glitzy things that you might want in a holiday, but it is lovely and quiet and the beaches are spectacular.

The why I thought is because it is a natural progression for tourists to go south for the cooler weather, often sheltered beaches etc. and the towns and cities further south have consequently developed more and have more to offer the tourist. Hence, a quiet Yanchep.

On top of that the highway leading north, the Brand Highway, does not even go through Yanchep, so really it all comes to a bit of a dead end. Still I can imagine that in time to come there will be more development in the area and it will become more popular, probably as an upmarket quiet getaway for Perth residents.
