Mandurah Warnings and Dangers

  • Mikebb's Profile Photo

    by Mikebb Updated Jul 24, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Marina and the Channel are good fishing spots as well as being a favoured place for tourists. Some days there are up to 200 people fishing from the rock walls and many casual passers by who watch for 15 minutes and move on. Signs are erected requesting people do not feed the many varieties of seabirds as this changes their social behaviour etc etc. Bins are provided for excess bait, tangled line, food scraps and other unwanted matter which can harm the seabirds. Occasionally birds are hooked and there is is phone contact should you have a problem releasing the bird.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There are so many lovely boats here. Mandurah has a lot of rich houses on canals (a bit like the Gold Coast on the east side for those who know) and they all have boats. Here's just a little one, I couldn't resist lol.
