Mandurah – Meeting Place of the Heart
The coastal city of Mandurah, the home of Western Australia’s largest population of Indo-Pacific Bottlenose Dolphins, was originally known as ‘Madjoogoordap’ which translates ‘meeting place of the heart’. There is no better place than Mandurah to catch up with family and friends for a BBQ on the water!
Only 74 km south of Perth – just a short train ride or an hour’s drive by car down the Kwinana Freeway – Mandurah is ideal for a day trip or a short break from Perth. There is plenty of free parking in the city.
Mandurah is one of only a few places in Australia where wild Bottlenose Dolphins can be seen daily so close to the foreshore. You’ll spot them while enjoying a barbecue on our Eco BBQ Boats in Mandurah’s award-winning Ocean Marina.
Protected from summer sea breezes and strong currents, the Mandurah Ocean Marina is a great location to cruise around with our Eco BBQ Boats and also the perfect spot to see and be seen.
Drive through the Venetian Canals past impressive yachts, a vast variety of cafés, vibrant restaurants and trendy bars with live music to Dolphin Pool, a natural inlet with shallow bays and mooring spots.
Throw your anchor and simply grill and chill while taking in beautiful views.
