New experiences. New discoveries. All the new things to see and do in Mandurah.
When was the last time you visited Mandurah? Just like there’s more to Perth than Kings Park, there’s much more to Mandurah than it’s alluring canals.
Less than an hour’s drive from Perth, Mandurah is WA’s largest regional city, set against a magnificent backdrop of pristine beaches and an estuary twice the size of Sydney Harbour! It’s the perfect place to escape and unwind.
Because in Mandurah, we’re relaxed by nature.
The modern day Venice
It’s here you’ll find a slice of the Venice life. The city’s canals, winding rivers, gorgeous lakes and over 130 km² of calm inland waterways, make Mandurah the ideal destination to enjoy all kinds of activities by the water.
And just when you think you’ve seen it all, here’s what’s new to discover on your next weekender or extended stay in Mandurah.
Since opening in mid-2020, Salt and Bush Eco Tours have been opening up visitors’ eyes to the untouched wonders of Mandurah’s waterways, bushland and wildlife. Must-see experiences include a relaxed guided kayaking tour on foot peddled kayaks and laidback stargazing sessions. But don’t take our word for it, try it out for yourself next time you visit.
“This was such a great unique and special experience. We took a very peaceful paddle in our kayaks in the morning where a feeding dolphin greeted us. The foot peddle kayaks are amazing, hard to go back to using a paddle!” – David May
“Kayaking along the Serpentine River – it was the most beautiful and peaceful morning! Jamie and Base are the most friendly and knowledgeable pair. They spotted so much wildlife – so many beautiful birds and we saw dolphins too.” – Sinead Allsop
Dip your toes in the water for a unique adventure with Soulmate Charters. Their personalised and intimate cruises will have you feeling like you’re relaxing on your own deck, as you meander through Mandurah’s playful waterways and the Peel inlet. Anchor up at one of their favourite spots, where you can enjoy a swim, float on a lounge, try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding or just sit back and relax.
From the sea to the land, Epic Day Tours make it easy to explore the best of Mandurah with travel from Perth included. Get to know the real Mandurah with a day choc-full of local and authentic encounters.

New places to dine
To experience more of Mandurah’s relaxed, local vibes, head to brewvino for some local beer and bites, while enjoying the best view in Mandurah upstairs on the boardwalk.

Must-try dishes include their signature chilli mussels, seafood aglio e olio linguine, wild mushroom risotto and Wood & Stone’s famous Nail Oatmeal Stout braised beef brisket. Hungry anyone?
