Mandurah, Western Australia’s largest regional city, is set against a backdrop of magnificent beaches and an estuary twice the size of Sydney Harbour.
Less than an hour from Perth by car or train, Mandurah is an easy destination for a day trip, romantic weekend getaway or family holiday.
The first people to have inhabited the region were the Bindjareb people of the Noongar Nation, who named the locality Mandjoogoordap (now Mandurah), which translates as ‘meeting place of the heart’.
We are unique
Now known as the modern-day Venice, Mandurah’s canals, winding rivers, pretty lakes and 134 km² of calm inland waterways make it the ideal destination to enjoy all kinds of activities on or near the water. As soon as you arrive in Mandurah, you feel relaxed and get this instant holiday feeling. Because in Mandurah, we’re relaxed by nature.
Scooping for blue swimmer crabs, that are native to Mandurah, is another favourite pastime for many visitors and locals alike.
Explore and enjoy the serenity at the Peel-Yalgorup Wetland System where thousands of migratory birds visit every year.
Just out of Mandurah is the Yalgorup National Park which includes 10 coastal lakes and wetlands. It’s home to thousands of migrating birds and Lake Clifton, which has the longest thrombolite reef in the Southern Hemisphere.
