The park’s marketing co-ordinator Jennifer Green said the Department of Parks and Wildlife’s Nearer to Nature program included exciting winter activities.

‘This year’s winter holidays will be jam-packed with things to do,’ she said.

On July 11, children can indulge in some local Nyoongar culture at the Coolangar dreaming activity including making bush jewellery, decorating a boomerang and listening to Dreamtime stories.

Later that day at the afternoon funky fossil session, they can learn about the earliest marine life and see evidence of these creatures in the surrounding limestone.

On July 17, there will be an adventure caving session, with both Yonderup and Yanchep cave open for little explorers. Call 9295 2244.

– Entry to Yanchep National Park will be free during the school holidays (July 5 to 20) for visitors with a Nature Play passport.
