Why Mandurah?

Set against the beautiful Indian Ocean, Mandurah stretches across estuaries, rivers and canals to natural forests, 2000 year old thrombolites, a foreshore lined with cafes and restaurants and a world-class marina.

The Mandurah Plein Air Artists  ensure that plein air painting is visible and accessible to anyone wanting to experience the joy of painting in the open air.

Mandurah is part of the wider Peel Region, and offers many diverse experiences. Within a two-hour drive is the Margaret River wine region, and Perth is easily accessible by a 50 minute train ride to the centre of the city.

Get back to nature kayaking, bush walking, mountain biking or horseback riding, spotting wildlife and wildflowers along the way. Have a picnic by a waterfall, lake or river, ride a train through the forest or explore the region’s history.

There is so much to explore you can easily spend a week or more in Mandurah and the Peel Region.

The city takes its name from a Noongar word meaning meeting place and although it is recognised as one of Australia’s 50 best small towns, it is actually Western Australia’s second largest city.
