Explore Yalgorup National Park

Visit Yalgorup National Park to see the amazing Thrombolite living fossils. 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.

Yalgorup National Park is known for its elongated lakes, beautiful tuart and peppermint woodlands and, above all, for the microscopic communities that reside in Lake Clifton and form thrombolites.

The wetlands of the park have been identified by Bird Life International as the Yalgorup Important Bird Area because of their importance for waterbirds.

Lake Clifton and Lake Preston are both situated within the boundaries of the park and are home to a large variety of bird-life.

Black Swans, Kingfishers, grebes, coots, waterfowl and a variety of parrots and a variety of dotterels can be found in and around the lake habitat.

Woodlands and Tuart forests are also found within the park and contain fauna including Western Grey Kangaroos, emus, brush wallabys, brush-tailed possums, echidna and bandicoots.

Yalgorup National Park offers visitors panoramic views of the beaches, dunes and lakes from several high spots. Peaceful settings among the patches of tuart forest and woodland, and sweeping views over the tranquil lakes, give the area a wilderness feel.
