Koala Boardwalk at Yanchep National Park

How many can you spot?
Koalas are not native to Western Australia so you wouldn't think you'd see them in a National Park near Perth. But just 55 kilometres north of the Perth CBD, in Yanchep National Park, that's exactly where you can find a bunch of these little Aussie icons.

The park has had koalas on display since the 1930s. Not far from the main entrance to the park is a koala viewing area. A boardwalk allows people to meander through the open air 'enclosure' where the koalas live.

The koalas love to climb and have huge trees to make the most of so spotting them can be a bit like a game of Where's Wally. On our recent visit we managed to spot 10 koalas.

Once you're done checking out the koalas, there are barbecue facilities nearby or you could explore more of the park, which involves wetlands and caves.

Yanchep National Park is open every day. Entry to the national park costs $13 for a vehicle of up to 12 people.
