Mandurah is a meeting place of land, water, people and cultures, the natural and built environment, and traditional and modern ideas. One of Mandurah’s greatest assets is its diverse and friendly community. Mandurah (map) welcomes friends and family from around the globe to enjoy its relaxed coastal lifestyle. In fact, the name Mandurah is derived from the Aboriginal word, ‘mandjar’ meaning ‘meeting place’.
Mandurah is one of the most vibrant regional cities in Western Australia. Once a small fishing village that boomed during holiday periods, it now has a thriving population of more than 84,000. Situated on Western Australia’s beautiful coastline about 72km south of Perth, Mandurah prides itself on a mix of inner city and semi-rural living between the Indian Ocean, the expansive waterways of the Peel-Harvey Estuary and the lower reaches of the Serpentine River.
