Perry's Bunkhouse as it exists today on Perry's Paddock, is located within the Yellagonga Regional Reserve. To access this site by car park on Ocean Reef Road and it's a short 20m walk to reach the buildings. The bunkhouse is not original as it was reconstructed in the early 1990's, however is representative of the lifestyle of the early European settlers.

Nearby is the original Perry's Cottage (ruins) and information signboards tell the full story. This is a delightful spot in the middle of suburbia that is notable for being the location of Wanneroo's first land grant, surveyed in 1838.

The winding paved trails through the area connect cyclists & walkers with nearby Beenyup Swamp and through to Woodvale Drive. Just south of the bunkhouse runs a creek with a delightful bridge that is worth exploring.

DEC manages the Yellagonga Regional Park in collaboration with the City of Joondalup and the City of Wanneroo. Yellagonga Regional Park is home to several volunteer groups. Contact DEC on 9219 9290 to find out more about volunteering in the park.
