Yalgorup National Park protects a wetland system that includes ten magnificent lakes and has achieved international recognition as an important area for migratory water birds and supports several threatened plant and animal species.
While the park is known for its lakes and beautiful tuart and peppermint woodlands, its crowning glories are the Lake Clifton thrombolites, which can be viewed from a boardwalk over the lake. This is one of few places in Western Australia where these microscopic communities survive.
The recently re-furbished Martins Tank Campground has a camp kitchen, gas barbecue facilities and picnic tables. Campsites are not bookable and operate on a first come first served basis. Rates are: adult $10, concession $6.60 and child (6-15yrs) $2.20 per night.
A park entry fee of $12 ($6 concession) per vehicle applies at many of the popular national parks in WA, although not at Yalgorup National Park, and many visitors appreciate the savings and convenience of purchasing either a four week Holiday Pass or Annual All Parks Pass online at Shop.dpaw.wa.gov.au/ before their trip.

Spring and autumn are particularly good times to explore Yalgorup National Park. There are nature walks at Lake Preston and Martins Tank Lake Campground which incorporates the Lake Pollard Bird Hide. Both walks can be strolled at a leisurely pace before indulging in a well-earned barbecue or picnic.
