Local art takes its place at Yanchep Lagoon

Residents and visitors to the Yanchep Foreshore now have a new place to take in the spectacular sight of the Lagoon, with the completion of the lookout area only two minutes from Capricorn Beach Estate.

A boat shaped shelter with tables and seating, a beach shower, drinking fountain, and bicycle rails have all been installed, as well as custom make street furniture which incorporates the artwork of Two Rocks resident, Karyn Nelson.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said Ms Nelson’s creative work won a highly commended award in the City’s 2015 Art Awards, and contained many local elements such as Kangaroo Paws, Carnaby cockatoos, gum nuts, honey possums, and the coastline.

“I love seeing art in our community,” Mayor Roberts said.

“Featuring a local artist’s work in this innovative way – being the backrest of the bench seat – is a wonderful addition to the area and a great way to showcase Karyn’s talents.”

Landscaping works along Brazier Road are now complete, as is the new beach access at the Fishermans Hollow point.

The public amenities block at Fishermans Hollow is now being refurbished as part of the Yanchep Foreshore Upgrade. This is only one part of the growing range of amenities available within minutes to residents and visitors to Capricorn Beach – come visit us this weekend and see the difference.
