Whilst in this northern area of the Sunset Coast, take the time to go fishing in the beautiful Yanchep Lagoon. Head further north again, where you will come across Two Rocks, a peaceful coastal community. Two Rocks also boasts a marina and boat harbour and the coastline is scattered with historic shipwrecks


Yanchep – Just north of the Lagoon there is a small reef called “Rafts” that provides both right and left breaking waves about 150 days a year. There are some good banks to the North providing some beach breaks too. The Spot (north of Yanchep) – A popular break with the locals, The Spot often provides long barrelling left hand waves. There is a beach break to the north that provides some fast fun for the body boarders as well.

Like the Nyoongar people the new settlers used the natural resources of the ‘lakes districts’ to sustain them and by 1872 there were 60 new families in the area.
