Scene in Mandurah,

Sit back and be relaxed by nature in this giant chair that was commissioned by Visit Mandurah and made by the Men’s Shed Mandurah, a local not-for-profit organisation. Mandurah’s famous Moreton Bay fig tree and the estuary create the perfect backdrop for an Instagram photo.  Don’t forget to hashtag #visitmandurah.

THE HEART

Location: Mandurah Eastern Foreshore

Mandurah is known as Mandjoogoordap in Noongar language which translates as ‘meeting place of the heart’. After European settlement the name was adapted to Mandurah. No visit to Mandurah is complete without a photo in the aluminium heart sculpture which was designed by local artist Gary Aitken.

A remarkable depiction of Mandurah’s abundant marine wildlife jumps out from the pavement in front of the Mandurah Visitor Centre. Another masterpiece created by 3D pavement artist Jenny McCracken.
