Four things to do and see in Mandurah

By Kevin Kelly

The city of Mandurah is an hour and quarter's drive to the north of Bunbury – a perfect place for owners of Bunbury real estate to spend a day or two exploring.

What are the four best things to do and see in Mandurah?

Hang out at Dolphin Quay

Found at the Mandurah Ocean Marina, Dolphin Quay is a place where you can find food, gifts and live music all in the one sunny spot. Whether you choose to take in the beautiful ocean scenery as you grab a bite to eat at Catch-22 cafe, or hunt for that perfect handmade gift at Aster & Ruby's, there's plenty here for everyone to fill their day.

If you're a boat owner, you can park up in the Marina and step right off the water into this fantastic area. There are 11 water connections and power outlets, so it's a perfect place to stop in for a while.

See the Amaze Miniature Park

For whatever reason, seeing small versions of big things is something everyone can enjoy. At Amaze Miniature Park, you'll be able to do just this, as you walk around the gallery of scale model buildings and railways. There are four acres of gardens to explore, with the tiny models spread throughout for you to discover.

Featuring scale replicas of well-known historic buildings from the United Kingdom and Germany, there're sure to be some that you recognise.

Go on a cruise

Exploring the natural environment in Mandurah with a cruise might be the number one thing to do in the city. There are many operators in the area, so it's simply a matter of choosing one that takes your fancy. Mandurah Cruises, for example, run dolphin and scenic canal cruises, that take you on a journey through the city's calm inland waterways on a quest to spot some of the Indo-Pacific Bottlenose dolphins that live there. You can also choose to have a fish and chips lunch on board too, a perfect accompaniment to a relaxing cruise.

Visit the Creery Wetlands Nature Reserve

The wetlands in Mandurah are filled with interesting flora and fauna. There you'll have the chance to spot some of the 22 species of migratory shorebirds that call the place home. A number of viewing platforms and boardwalks have been built, so you're able to get close to the natural environment without disturbing it.
