The first people to have inhabited the region were the Bindjareb people of the Noongar Nation, who named the locality Mandjoogoordap (now Mandurah), which translates as ‘meeting place of the heart’. Today, the Peel Region is made up of the City of Mandurah and surrounding Shires of Serpentine Jarrahdale, Murray, Waroona and Boddington.
Mandurah is Western Australia’s (WA) largest and fastest growing regional city and is set against a backdrop of magnificent beaches and an estuary twice the size of Sydney Harbour.
With new tourism experiences complementing its superb natural assets, significant redevelopment and recently being recognised as WA’s 2017 Top Tourism Town, Mandurah has come of age. The city offers award-winning waterfront dining, aquatic adventures, world- class golf courses and plenty of places to shop.
Mandurah is only an hour south of Perth, making it an easy destination for a day trip or longer stay.
It is also the perfect starting point to explore the wider Peel Region. In an easy half hour drive, you will discover beautiful wineries, winding waterways, charming country eateries, rolling green hills and tiny timber towns nestled amid the forest.
There are so many unique experiences you can easily spend a week or more exploring Perth’s natural adventure playground.
