With stunning beaches, natural beauty and unique wildlife, Mandurah is a seaside hub set against the stunning backdrop of the Indian Ocean and winding waterways.

Originally known as Mandjoogoordap, Mandurah means ‘meeting place of the heart’, and once you arrive here it’s easy to see why Mandurah was crowned WA’s Top Tourism Town in 2022.

With an abundance of aquatic and nature activities, award-winning waterfront dining and a vibrant arts and culture scene, whether you stay for a day, a weekend or a week, your visit to Mandurah will be a memorable one.

The ‘Giants of Mandurah‘ by world-renowned Danish artist Thomas Dambo is Mandurah’s latest attraction and first of its kind in Australia.

These wooden sculptures are protectors of the environment and cleverly hidden around Mandurah in a free-to-view interactive outdoor exhibition that requires you to find them, following a trail of clues.

If you’re heading out on a Giant Hunt, don’t forget to pop into the award-winning Mandurah Visitor Centre (voted best in the State in 2022) for your map and clues. If you’d prefer to have some company (and a little help) when going on your Giant adventure, you can choose from a selection of guided boat, coach and e-bike tours!

Mandurah is popping right now with so many more big reasons to visit. There’s an array of exciting experiences around Mandurah for you to explore. From the thrill-seekers to the kickback and relaxers, Mandurah has got you covered.
