Insta-Worthy Spots

Insta-Worthy Spots

Where to find
your next unique
and interesting
Instagram shot

Mandurah is a pretty seaside town and home to many unique and interesting spots that make the perfect Instagram photo. From natural attractions to man-made Venetian Canals, Mandurah is an Instagrammer’s paradise. For the culture and art enthusiasts, check out Mandurah’s Art Trails.

Mandurah Bridge

Originally built in 1894, then rebuilt in 1954 and then completely replaced and opened in 2017, the Mandurah Bridge on Old Coast Road is an iconic local landmark and traffic bridge across the estuary. There is a strong tradition of fishing under the bridge which started when timber platforms were constructed in the 1890’s and remains to this day as one of the most renowned crabbing locations in Perth. The current bridge is lit up at night in different colours which makes it popular for Instagram snaps.

Stingray Point

Stingray point is a small, grassy reserve with sweeping views of the estuary across Mandjar Bay. A large Morton Bay fig tree and the stunning backdrop of the Mandurah Bridge and Eastern Foreshore makes it a popular location for wedding ceremonies and Instagram snaps. There is also a restored gazebo and jetty which makes for some picturesque photographs.

Mandurah Beaches

With 60 kilometres of coastline and its stretches of white sand beaches, Mandurah is a delight for any photographer and Instagrammer. Favourite locations are Blue Bay Beach, Town Beach, Avalon Beach and the staircases at Halls Head Beach.

Creery Wetlands

Being a wetland of international importance, the Creery Wetlands are not only an important sanctuary and habitat for both resident and migratory wetland birds but also a great location to capture the calm and serene vibe of the place.

The Lake Clifton Thrombolites

Lake Clifton at Yalgorup National Park is a serene, beautiful spot to enjoy at any time of day or night. As there isn’t any light pollution, this spot is excellent for stargazing. It’s also a truly unique spot for some astrophotography with the Thrombolites in the foreground: these extremely rare rock-like structures are living fossils believed to be one of the first life forms on earth, dating back over 500 million years. With the beauty of the night sky in the background, you’re bound to get some insta-worthy snaps.

Venetian Canals

Venetian Canals in Western Australia! This alone is reason enough to take a snap but they also look pretty. You’ll find these lovely European-inspired canals with their luxury apartments throughout much of the city.

Mandurah Instagram Trail

Where to find your next unique and interesting Instagram shot

If you love getting the perfect Insta-worthy shot, then follow the Mandurah Instagram Trail and look out for the larger-than-life, colourful and 3D art pieces along the Mandurah Foreshore and into Dolphin Quay. Don’t forget to tag @visitmandurah and #visitmandurah to share your snaps with us.

Blue Swimmer Crab – 3D Art Painting

Location: East end of Mandurah Bridge, corner of Pinjarra Road and Mandurah Terrace

Definitely the safest and one of the most fun ways to pose with Mandurah’s famous blue swimmer crabs. This interactive street art was created by Australia’s most highly awarded pavement artist Jenny McCracken. Take a photo from the footprint for the best 3D effect.

Floral Swinging Mural

Location: Tuckey Lane (Between 5 and 8 Mandurah Terrace)

Thanks to the community-run organisation Shape Mandurah, this laneway was transformed into a Mandurah Instagram hotspot. Don’t forget to get your photo taken here.

The Heart

Location: Eastern Foreshore

Mandurah was 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.

Marine Wildlife 3D Art Pavement Painting

Location: In front of the Mandurah Visitor Centre, 75 Mandurah Terrace

A remarkable depiction of Mandurah’s abundant marine wildlife seen jumping out from the pavement. Take a pic from the right spot and share your pic of this masterpiece created by 3D pavement artist Jenny McCracken. Don’t forget to hashtag #visitmandurah

The Frame

Location: Boardwalk, near Mandurah Boat & Bike Hire, Ormsby Terrace

Designed by local artist Gary Aitken in 2005, this aluminium sculpture encourages you to interact by framing your view.

Colours of Mandurah

Location: Between Ormsby Terrace and Keith Holmes Reserve

The colours that make up this colourful walkway have been chosen by locals, inspired by their connections to Mandurah. Artist Will Clark of Blank Walls has created the most vibrant of paths, linking Mandjar Square to Mandurah Ocean Marina in just 250 steps.

Seafood Nation – Giant Marine Wildlife

Location: Dolphin Quay, Zephyr Mews, Mandurah Ocean Marina

Get your photo with a giant western rock lobster, shark, bottlenose dolphins or blue swimmer crabs at Dolphin Quay. It’s a fun way to spend time while your food is being cooked.

Pelican – 3D Art

Location: Dolphin Quay, corner Dolphin Drive and Spinnaker Quays

Did you know that an adult pelican may eat up to 1.8 kilograms of fish per day? Well, this one is particularly hungry and clearly doesn’t like to share! Get creative here and snap another fun pic.

It’ll be a great way to see more of Mandurah – and take memorable pics!

Do you also know this feeling when you need to get away from it all, when it’s time to get out of that box that is the office, and the home, and the car, and take a walk or a hike? Well, we’ve got plenty of great walking and hiking trails here in Mandurah and the Peel Region, just waiting for you to be explored.

Mandurah and Peel Region’s Top Walking Trails

It might not be the quickest way to get around, but in the famous words of a Mr Ferris Bueller: life moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

So slow down as you walk one of these idyllic tracks – while smelling those roses, as ordered, you’ll also find yourself coming across gorges, dense forests, wetlands and suspended bridges to hike up the excitement on these trails.

Please note to check https://parks.dpaw.wa.gov.au/ for updates on track conditions for those in national state parks before you put your sneakers on.

1. Kitty’s Gorge Walk.

Location: Jarrahdale. Distance: 14km return

As the name suggests, this walk takes you across the rocky terrain of Kitty’s Gorge, following the Serpentine River to eventually bring you to the falls.
The story goes that Kitty was actually a cow who wandered away and was found months later down the gorge. Don’t be like Kitty. Prepare yourself for a five-hour walk of moderate difficulty, with some uneven ground and steep stretches of track.

From here, you can also access Baldwin’s Bluff, which is about 6km all up and offers extended views from the bluff.

2. Len Howard Conservation Park.

Location: Erskine. Distance: 2km – 6km

A short, easy nature track looping around the wetlands, this trail offers bird watching spots and is connected to a reserve that’s perfect for a picnic.

The trail is partly comprised of a boardwalk over the glistening wetlands.
For the more enthusiastic hiker, a longer walk along the Erskine Walk Trail of approximately 6km and a two-hour return is also available.

3. Tullis Bridge and Tullis Rail Trails

Location: Boddington. Distance: 3 – 16km

Starting at – you guessed it – Tullis Bridge, this walk follows a flat, easy trail along the picturesque Hotham River.

The track weaves through bushland and back to the bridge site, which is a great spot for a picnic.

If you’re after a longer walk, the Tullis Rail Trail starts from the Boddington Lions Rodeo Grounds and is about 16km, finishing up at the wooden bridge.

Tullis-Bridge-Boddington

4. Riverside Heartwalk

Location: Mandurah. Distance: 2km

Just to the east of Mandurah, this 90 minute walk follows a southern part of the Serpentine River, with a boardwalk that leads out to the water to offer breathtaking vistas.

While the odd boat is a pretty common sight, if you’re lucky, you might spot a couple dolphins, known to visit the area.

Riverside Heartwalk Mandurah - Visit Mandurah

5. Island Point Walk

Location: Herron. Distance: 2km – 3km

A popular bird watching and picnic spot, Island Point Reserve also offers short walks able to be taken on by young and old.

6. Pinjarra Heritage Walk Trail

Location: Pinjarra. Distance: 1.2km

A fun track that crosses the Pinjarra suspension bridge, this walk takes you not just over the Murray River and its surrounding bushland but also through the historic town itself – making it a good choice for those not as keen for full-on bushwalking.
