what to expect


The Capricorn Beach Foreshore development will give a new lease of life to a very popular beach which has been a favourite spot of the Yanchep locals over many years.

Our vision is to create a more exciting, accessible, community lifestyle for generations to enjoy this remarkable slice of paradise.

Ultimately, the project will see 12 hectares of beachfront land curated into a stunning lifestyle destination with parklands, tourism resort, cafés and restaurants and a range of residential housing.

The revitalised area will feature beautiful, landscaped parklands with children’s adventure play areas, a universal access path to the stunning protected beach, as well as retaining the closest carpark to the beach along the northern corridor.

The foreshore development has commenced and access to the beach along Capricorn Esplanade is now accessible to local traffic. Visitors are enjoying the completion of an upgraded lower beachfront carpark, the exciting adventure playground, BBQ’s, picnic shelters, beach shower and much more!

The 74 bay foreshore carpark on the southern side of the playground is in its final stages of design, with work planned to commence August 2023 and completion expected before summer.

Progress on the café and bar plans are going well, with building designs and leasing agreements with proprietors underway. Approvals are expected later this year, with construction set to begin early 2024.

Remaining works in the northern zone are currently on hold, pending further discussions with tourism operators to facilitate the best use of the site north of the new foreshore lawn area.
