A NEW tourist drive in Yanchep and Two Rocks has launched to highlight attractions and points of interest in the region.

In an effort to draw more motorists to the area from Wanneroo Road and Marmion Avenue, 10 new signs have been erected.

The signs were installed at Breakwater Drive through Two Rocks and Yanchep, back to Wanneroo Road, near the entrance to Yanchep National Park.

They lead road users to the town centres as well as Yanchep Lagoon, Mary Lindsay Homestead and the Atlantis statues.

City of Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said it would support tourism and associated businesses in the area by showcasing a number of attractions as well as the local coastal and bushland environments, and places to visit along the route.

“The Yanchep/Two Rocks region has some fantastic attractions that appeal to locals and tourists alike; from Yanchep National Park and Yanchep Lagoon to the Mark Le Buse statues in Two Rocks, Mary Lindsay Homestead and of course King Neptune,” se said.

“This new signage will help visitors explore the region while supporting the many tourism-focused businesses in Yanchep, Two Rocks and surrounds.”

The initiative was a joint effort between the City of Wanneroo, the Yanchep and Two Rocks Tourism Network and Main Roads WA.
