What’s new in the City
Mandurah’s new Estuary pool is ready to have you splashing around! The new centrepiece of Mandurah’s waterfront features a floating jetty platform which gives you a nod back to the days of the Mandurah baths and Robert Day Memorial Pools in the 1950s and 60s.
Named Kwillena (dolphin) Gabi (waters) by the traditional owners of Bindjareb Boodja, this natural waterway shares its habitat with local marine life.
