“McNess House is part of a group of buildings which were established in the 1930s as a resort complex on the shores of Lake McNess. The resort is part of Yanchep National Park. The name Yanchep is derived from the native name Yanget. The area was first visited by Europeans in 1834, when John Butler searched for stray cattle 53km north of Perth and recorded the lakes and an abundance of game. Then four years later, Lieutenant George Grey explored the area. In the period 1899-1902, the first actual settler, Henry White, built and took up residence in a cottage opposite Yonderup, adjacent to the south end of Lake Yanchep. With the realisation that the area was quite attractive, the Government saw fit to reserve 5,640 acres of the district which enclosed the lake and flats approximately 8km long, for the Protection and Preservation of Caves and Flora and for a Health and Recreation Pleasure Resort. The Reserve, No 9868, was vested in the Caves Board in August 1905…….read more here
