Approximately a 49-minute journey from Perth, Yanchep Station will become the heart of Perth’s newest strategic business centre.
The end-of-the-line station will be located south of the future Toreopango Avenue, north of Yanchep Beach Road, east of Marmion Avenue and west of Wanneroo Road.
The Noongar place name for Yanchep Station is Yanchep and the narrative is ‘A native flax or bulrush’ (Yanchep is derived from the Noongar word Yanget).
Built in a cutting, with a cut and cover approach to provide ground-level connections in a concourse area to each side of the railway, Yanchep Station’s future-proof design provides land development opportunities, while meeting passenger needs from day one of operations.
The station will feature:
- public toilets, public services such as vending machines, kiosk, passenger ticketing/information, staff amenities, station administration offices, storage/cleaning and operational facilities
- a shared path, two secure bike shelters with the ability to add more shelters in the future
- 14-stand bus interchange including seven layover bays, seating and information facilities
- dedicated passenger drop-off area and approximately 1,000 parking bays.

Early investigations were conducted with the METRONET Noongar Reference Group to identify important local landmarks, such as the Banksia Menziesii and neighbouring Yanchep Caves, which has influenced the station's architecture.
The Banksia Menziesii, with its orange cone shaped flowers, has been chosen to represent Yanchep Station as Banksia is typical of the area and portrays warmth (fire) and nurturing (nectar).
The Yanchep caves are a registered Aboriginal site with their own stories and mythology about their creation and importance to Noongar people.
