Lancelin Sand Dunes

Lancelin Sand Dunes are an hour south of the Pinnacles. Stop here to watch the sunset over the ocean from Western Australia’s tallest sand dune or try sand boarding the dunes. You can rent a board for as little as $12. 

There are no toilets at the dunes so take care of that on your way through the town at Wangaree Park (near the IGA supermarket).

Free Camping

For free camping keep heading south on the highway for 25 minutes (36 km) to Moore 24 hour rest area. There are no showers but it has toilets, sheltered picnic tables and a dump point for blackwater if your campervan has a toilet and shower. 

Lancelin to PERTH

Option 1: In wildflower season, head inland to Gingin and follow Highway 1 south to Perth. It only adds 40 minutes to your journey but you’ll enjoy the display of flowers and will treasure the photos.

Option 2: Continue along the coast, through Yanchep National Park, to Perth

Yanchep National Park

The Yanchep National Park has a koala colony that you can visit. Eastern Grey kangaroos are a common sight and you’re likely to spot them if you take one of the walks. Free gas BBQs and picnic tables make this a good spot for lunch.

There are 9 walking trails to choose from some of them multi-day adventures. The three walks that take less than one hour are:

  1. Wetlands Loop, a 2 km boardwalk around the lake.
  2. Woodlands walk, a 2.6 km trail through woodlands, grass trees and wildflowers.
  3. Dwerta Mia walk, a short 1 km trail passed cliffs, a cave and interpretive boards.

From Yanchep it is just 54 km (40 minutes) to Perth
