Mandurah Information

Bosting an astonishing aquatic playground and cosmopolitan lifestyle itís no wonder Mandurah is so popular to visit. With delightful restaurants and cafes, crystal clear blue water, and an abundance of activities for the whole family, Mandurah makes for a great getaway!

While Mandurah and the Peel Region were settled by Englishman Thomas Peel in 1830, the first people known to have inhabited the Mandurah area were Aboriginal people of the Bibbulmun Nation.

The Estuary was a main source of food for them and they had a superior knowledge of living off the land, which abounded in fish, game, berries and fruits. The locality was then known as Mandjar, which translates to 'meeting place'.

Along the eastern foreshore is the heritage art walk - a series of statues and mosaics that depict people, events and activities from Mandurahís Aboriginal and Settler history.
