How to get to the community fair at Yanchep:

There’s no better time to use public transport. Trains will run every 15 minutes from Perth to Yanchep from 9:53am, and Yanchep to Perth from 10:30am.

Every Sunday, travel is free for all SmartRider holders. You will need to tag on and off with your SmartRider but you will not be charged a fare, no matter how far you travel. Free travel is available on all Transperth bus, train and ferry trips from first service until last service.

If you live nearby, embrace eco-friendly travel and walk, cycle or scoot to the event.

Planning to drive? 900 car bays are available at Yanchep Station. If you're planning on catching the train to Yanchep from one of the other new stations, there are over 700 bays at Alkimos Station and 400 bays at Eglinton Station. 

Please note: the car parks at Alkimos and Eglinton stations will not be open to the public until 10am.

The METRONET Yanchep Rail Extension Project has delivered 14.5 kilometres of new rail from Butler, north to Yanchep – helping support ongoing growth in the area, reduce traffic congestion and create around 1,370 jobs. Click here for more project info.
