Renowned for its picturesque location, with stunning native bushland on one side and the pristine Indian Ocean on the other, Yanchep is bustling with life. With accessible nature reserves, beaches, dunes, limestone cliffs and many more, Jindowie is the ultimate playground. The best way to soak up and experience everything that this community has to offer, is to grab the kids, pack the car and head out on a day trip. With so many great places to discover, we’ve compiled a list of some of our personal favourites to help get your exploring started.
Yanchep National Park
Only nine-minutes from Jindowie you’ll find Yanchep National Park. Home to Western Grey Kangaroos, walking trails, limestone caves, rich aboriginal history and heritage architecture, Yanchep National Park is the perfect place to take the family for the day. Pack a picnic to enjoy after a day spent exploring collapsed cave systems, gorges, pristine coastal wetlands, or haunted historic remains. If you’re feeling super adventurous, why not book a Crystal Cave tour? You’ll learn about the cave’s rich history and geology during a 45-minute guided tour. With tours running four times a day, you can find out more information and book a tour here.
Just under an hour drive away, Lancelin should be on the top of your must visit list when you call Jindowie home. This small fishing town is proudly home to the biggest sand dunes in Western Australia and boasts some of the coast’s best beaches. The protected waters of Lancelin’s main bay are sheltered by outer reefs, making it the ideal spot for a plethora of water activities. Think swimming, snorkelling, fishing and surfing.

Yanchep Lavender Farm
Surrounded by butterflies and the smell of lavender, Yanchep Lavender Farm is located just seven-minutes away from Jindowie. Open from midday Tuesday to Sunday, this family friendly farm is a hidden gem. While the kiddos are playing and picking lavender, the adults can have a browse in the store looking at a range of lavender oil, soaps and lotions, and also stop in for a snack from the café next door.
On the edge of the southern gateway to Western Australia’s coral coast, the Pinnacles desert is one of the region’s most visited attractions. Just under two hours from home, you’ll find these famous natural limestone structures in Nambung National Park. Dating back over 25,000 years ago after the ocean receded and left mass deposits of seashells in its wake, these structures were formed as over time, coastal winds removed the surrounding sand, leaving the pillars exposed to the elements.
