The Mandurah Crab Festival in autumn is the city's major festival event of the year. The festival is set up on the foreshore in Mandurah with live entertainment and all the attractions of a fair including show bags. Over the course of the weekend there will be cooking displays by various chefs with crab (along with other seafood) obviously being the main focus. There is also a wine tasting pavilion. On the Saturday night there is also a fireworks display.
The Boat and Fishing Show is held in October at the Mandurah Ocean Marina and the Mandurah Offshore Fishing and Sailing Club. You will see one of the biggest collections of big boats, yachts and trailer boats ever amassed in WA and probably one of the best boat shows in the world.
Admission is charged.
The circus operates in Mandurah Hall Park. There is the wheel of death, flying trapeze, crazy clowns, acrobats, miniature ponies and horses. The Ferris Wheel that is beside the circus has been in Mandurah for many many years… not always in the same location though.
Dates: Last Saturday in April - to Mid May
Location : Mandurah Hall Park
