The State Government is investing $8.5 million to preserve and enhance Yellagonga Regional Park.  

The improvements will make the park more accessible to a broader range of visitors and allow more people to enjoy the park’s natural beauty.

Works will include the construction of 7km of urban mountain bike trails and supporting infrastructure including a carpark and toilets. A new boardwalk in the section of park between Ocean Reef Road and Whitfords Ave and a nature playground adjacent to Luisini Winery will be constructed. Some existing trails will be sealed, or upgraded with limestone material added.    

Interpretive signage around Lake Goollelal and throughout the park will further enhance the precinct. Additional planting around the lake will help to improve water quality and a viewing platform and boardwalk will be constructed on the Wanneroo side to provide access to Lake Joondalup.   

Further funding to increase rehabilitation works through the Friends of Yellagonga Regional Park will be provided to ensure the ongoing protection and restoration of the park.  

Construction of new recreation facilities at the corner of Lakeside Drive and Joondalup Drive are underway while planning and design of other exciting works throughout the park are ongoing.

Yalbunullup Mountain Bike Trails

Named after the traditional Aboriginal name for the site, development of the Yalbunullup Mountain Bike (MTB) Trails is underway! Located on the corner of Lakeside Drive and Joondalup Drive, the new mountain bike trails will include the construction of a new carpark, toilets, large pavilion shelter and interpretive signage. 
 
The new infrastructure has been purposefully designed to maintain an open view to the lake, provide accessible facilities and complement the surrounding bushland setting. The Yalbunullup MTB Trails will be suitable for ages, fitness levels and abilities featuring beginner and intermediate trails. Long term sustainability has been key in planning the new trails. Trail corridors were carefully selected to minimise impacts on natural and cultural values and will be constructed by professional trail builders in accordance with the Western Australian Mountain Bike Management Guidelines.

Local trail builders, Three Chillies Design will soon commence construction of this exciting new trail network. WCP Civil will undertake the carpark works while Element Construction will begin construction of the toilets and pavilion. 

The Yalbunullup MTB trails and infrastructure are due for completion in September 2024.
