Nature

The City of Joondalup is a nature lovers paradise. Stunning white sandy beaches, unique flora and fauna at Yellagonga Regional Park and lively marine life at Marmion Marine Park – it’s all here waiting to be explored.

Yellagonga Regional Park

The jewel of the City’s natural attractions, Yellagonga Regional Park is Joondalup’s best hidden secret where you could encounter kangaroos, long-necked turtles, frogs and a diverse range of birds.

Yellagonga Regional Park is a 13-kilometre-long chain of interconnected natural wetlands with many bush and wetland areas to discover. Explore the park by foot or bike using the 16km trail that loops around Lake Joondalup and stop for a rest at one of the many picnic spots along the way.

Coastline

The City is home to 17km of stunning coastline and some of Perth’s best beaches with Mullaloo and Sorrento providing visitors with stunning white sand and turquoise water.

Marmion Marine Park also stretches along the coast providing visitors with a number of great snorkelling and diving trails to explore Western Australia’s exciting marine life. Visitors can also explore the marine wildlife close up at the Aquarium of Western Australia located at Hillarys Boat Harbour.

Bushland

There are a number of bushland areas throughout the City that are home to diverse wildlife and unique plant species. Discover banksia, zamia palms and mature eucalyptus trees as well as quenda and Black Carnaby Cockatoos that feed in the natural areas.

The Plants and People in Mooro Country publication provides detailed information on the history of the City’s natural areas and is a perfect starting point for visitors keen to explore nature.
