Ghost House Walk Trail
Yanchep National Park
Directions - Yanchep National Park is located off Wanneroo Rd and is well signposted. To find the start of the Ghost House Walk just park at the Lake car park and head to the south side of the lake to loop around it. The first Ghost House trail marker is on the west side of the lake.
The Hike - With Western Australia Day making this weekend a day longer the Yanchep National Park decided to celebrate by waiving the usual entry fee. I decided to celebrate with them and made the hour long drive up to Yanchep to see what the park was all about. Having passed it several times driving up to the seaside town of Lancelin, I did not expect much given it was so close the highway and didn't look very special on the drive past. How I was wrong. After getting up well before the sun rose (the life of a hiker) I hopped on the freeway north and drove to the very end and then some. Once at the end of the freeway it is a short detour until you reach Wanneroo Road, which will take you all the way to the park.
