Neerabup NP Accommodation
Neerabup National Park, about 27 kilometres north of Perth along the western side of Wanneroo Road, is a long, narrow piece of bushland stretching only about 12 kilometres. But this small park is still able to provide a feeling of tranquillity and isolation in an ever-expanding urban world. The 1069-hectare park follows an old stock route, which in turn follows part of an ancient Aboriginal migration route between Lake Joondalup, in the Yellagonga Regional Park, and Loch McNess, in Yanchep National Park. The route also forms the basis for the 28 kilometre Yaberoo Budjara Heritage Trail, developed in 1988 as one of a network of heritage trails marking the Australian Bicentenary. The park has no prominent features, such as lakes, mountains or streams, and no formal recreational areas, such as picnic sites, within its boundaries. Access is by foot, as there are no roads or car parks. But despite its lack of formal recreation facilities, there are plenty of opportunities for quiet recreation. In spring, for example, the whole area comes alive with stunning displays of wildflowers, accompanied by the clamorous songs of countless birds.
