The Area: Mandurah, WA
Etched into many a Perthling’s memory from the beach holidays of their childhood, Mandurah continues to enchant. The once-sleepy fishing village has been transformed into a modern city of sparkling waterways and bustling restaurants, with safe swimming beaches and a multitude of water sports to cater for all ages. The new marina precinct at Dolphin Quay has added a sleek cosmopolitan flavour to the waterfront, and is the perfect place to enjoy oysters and a cold glass of wine as the sun sets.
Swim, surf, windsail or sunbake on Mandurah’s beautiful beaches, or take a 4WD adventure along Preston’s Beach. There are lots of beautiful walks nearby – check out the ‘living fossils’ at Lake Clifton in Yalgorup National Park, or the Serpentine Falls on Kitty’s Gorge Walk. Kids will love riding the ferris wheel at King’s Carnival, while adults relish the stylish bars and restaurants of Dolphin Quay.
