what to expect

The Capricorn Beach Foreshore development will bring a new lease of life to a very popular beach that has been a favourite spot of the Yanchep locals over many years. Ultimately it will see the transformation of 12 hectares of beachfront land into a stunning lifestyle destination with parklands, tourism resort, cafés and restaurants and a range of residential housing.

The Capricorn Beach Foreshore 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. Stage one of the redevelopment not only includes access to the upgraded lower beachfront carpark but an array of other facilities are coming including playgrounds, BBQ’s, picnic shelters, beach shower and much more – you can find out more by clicking the stages below to see what is coming next.
