For those that grew up in Perth in the 1980’s will no doubt remember Atlantis Marine Park located in Yanchep, the iconic King Neptune sitting upon his hill with his triton in one hand and the other out laid in a welcoming gesture. The dolphin statue that greeted you at the main entrance as you made your way in to see the seals and the dolphin show, ride on the pedal cats, play in Cap n’ Kids water world, so much fun to be had it is a shame that is had to close it’s door 9 years after opening back in 1981 (Wikipedia, 2012).
The park was a main feature for the promotion of Alan Bond’s Yanchep Sun city, its a real shame that the park never took off as it had great potential and its sad that it now sits in ruins wasting away.
