Mandurah Wrap

Thursday, April 21, 2005

Mandurah is a water wonderland and popular year-round with holiday makers and day trippers. It is Western Australia's fastest growing area, thanks to the good surfing, swimming, boating, dolphins and all sorts of things to enjoy outdoors.

The centre of Mandurah is around Mandjar Bay which is lined with cafes, restaurants, boardwalk, barbecue facilities and parks.

Mandurah Ferry Cruises offer a terrific way to have a good look at the area. They have canal and estuary cruises, dolphin-watching excursions and a journey along the enclosed waterways of Mandurah, Peel Inlet and the Murray River. The unspoilt area has lots of wildlife and modern canal developments. You will see the Mandurah Ocean Marina and Creery Wetlands Reserve.

Dolphin Quay at Mandurah Ocean Marina is a $5 million retail development, a blend of old world market stalls, waterfront eateries and beautiful boardwalks.

Blue Jacs Micro Brewery at Dolphin Quay has a range of beer brewed on site, and they serve meals as well.

Mino's Retreat, for adults only, was the first B&B to open on Mandurah's canals. The suite has a separate living area, his and hers dressing area, sparkling wine on arrival, Continental or cooked breakfast and fruit basket. Guests wake up to the gentle lapping of water and watch everything come to life as they are enjoying breakfast.


70km south of Perth


Mino's Retreat is $130 a night, including breakfast.

Mandurah Ferry one-hour canal cruises start at $13 for adults and $6.50 for children. Five-hour luncheon cruises are $48 for adults and $22 for children five-12 years.

Blue Jacs Microbrewery is open every day.

Please note that the prices listed are valid at the time of filming.
