Mandurah, Western Australia’s largest regional city and less than an hour from Perth, is set against a backdrop of magnificent beaches and an estuary twice the size of Sydney Harbour. Originally known as Mandjoogoordap, Mandurah means ‘meeting place of the heart’. Once you’ve arrived here, you fall in love with this place. Enjoy waterways for days and much more.
Mandurah is best known for its waterways and friendly local bottlenose dolphins, that you can see often in the estuary. In fact, the largest population of wild dolphins in the state live in Mandurah, with over 130 different species of birds too.
You can take a cruise to go dolphin spotting or hire a boat and go at your own pace. For something a little bit different, you can hire a BBQ boat and sausage sizzle your way around the Mandurah canals.
Get closer to nature on a kayak tour or be guided through the nature reserve to learn more about the precious wetlands and its habitat. Or be more adventurous and hire a jetski – you’ll have a blast! Thanks to 50 kilometres of sparkling coastline you can set your own pace with swimming, surfing, windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, diving, fishing and boating to name just a few.
Why not practice your swing on world-class golf courses situated in Mandurah and the Peel Region or just relax in any number of the water-side accommodation providers and eat delicious locally made food at your leisure.
The locals are relaxed by nature in Mandurah – visit for a day or stay a while longer and join them.
