Yaapeet is a small town in the Southern Mallee about 30km west of Hopetoun and provides access to Lake Albacutya Regional Park and Wyperfeld National Park.
Yaapeet beach, which is part of the Lake Albacutya Park, is a popular picnic spot and whilst camping is permitted in most areas of the Park, facilities are limited. The normally dry Lake Albacutya comes alive when heavy rains cause water to flood into the extended lake system in the region. The park adjoins Wyperfeld National Park and has similar plants and animals.
Lake Albacutya Park is popular for water skiing, fishing, yabbying and boating when water levels are high enough. See more about Lake Albacutya.
Wyperfeld National Park has nature walks, desert walks, lookout towers, 2WD and 4WD tracks, camping, picnics, cycling and motor bike riding. See more about Wyperfeld National Park.
