In October 1934, Prince Henry, the Duke of Gloucester, entertained guests at a formal function in the park’s Cabaret Cave before staying overnight at The Lodge, which was later renamed Gloucester Lodge in honour of his visit.

To celebrate the 80-year milestone, it will hold morning teas in Gloucester Lodge each day from September 30 until October 3 at 10am.

High teas will be will available on September 30 and October 2 from 2pm.

Department of Parks and Wildlife officer Heather Jarvis said people from the Yanchep and Two Rocks community were welcome to attend the teas.

‘The Duke of Gloucester’s visit was not only a special occasion in the park’s history, but also the history of the local area,’ she said.
