Mandurah - Cities, Towns and Localities
Located 72 km south of Perth, Mandurah is the capital of the Peel Region and sometimes referred to as the gateway to the South West. Mandurah is a thriving regional city for residents and a major seaside resort enjoyed by visitors from around the world. With a relaxed atmosphere and boasting some of the best waterways in Australia, you can experience a variety of water activities including swimming, cruising, waterskiing, fishing and crabbing.

With many of the cultural buildings set around the blue-green waters of Mandjar Bay, at night the bay is alive with people enjoy a barbeque or dining at one of the many restaurants and cafes.
 

From Mandjar Bay, Peel Inlet leads into the Harvey Estuary. Peel Inlet is fed by the Murray and Serpentine Rivers, whilst Harvey Estuary is fed by Harvey River. There is also the amazing engineering feat of the deep-water Dawsville Channel, which links the Inlet to the Indian Ocean.

Mandurah is also a key point in a chain of lakes and estuaries stretching from Perth in the north, to Bunbury in the south. It is a region that provides expanses of open water habitat for over 100,000 waterbirds, that include the Creery Wetlands located in the Peel Inlet region.

As well as offering world-class marina and a vibrant cosmopolitan lifestyle, Mandurah has many annual events such as the Crab Fest, Mandurah Ocean Marina Boat and Fishing Show, Stretch Arts and Community Festival and Mandurah International Opera Festival.

The name Mandurah derives from the Aboriginal word ‘mandja’ meaning the ‘meeting place’.
