    Mandurah is 65 kms south of Perth is one of the largest inland waterways in Australia. Take a cruise through the waterways admiring the wonderful homes and keeping a look out for dolphins that swim casually about. A favourite holiday area for boaties and fishermen out to catch prawns and crabs or holidaymakers wanting to wind-surf and scuba dive.

    In the Peel region where Mandurah resides are also Sepentine Falls National Park and Jarrah forests. There is also a wonderful bakery just before you turn off into Mandurah called Miami Bakery... sample some good old Aussie meat pies or sausage rolls or some of the other wonderful goodies.

    Canal Rock

    I dove scubba at Canal Rock, an hour and a half south of Mandurah. The way the rocks are positioned, the wave action swings you back and forth as you try to swim around.
    You can dive around the rocks themselves, or between them in the 'canal'. That is the funniest place.
    Warning : Always have a buddy while diving.

    Of course, you can also relax and enjoy the excellent entertainment provided at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre and Reading Cinemas, dine out at one of the great restaurants and caf├ęs in and around Mandurah and, if you've still got energy, join in the nightlife at Mandurah's pulsing nightclubs.

    This picture is us having lots of fun in the go-kart ring near the Reading pier.

    Just south of Mandurah on the western edge of the Swan Coastal Plain lies Yalgorup National Park. It offers visitors panoramic views of the beaches, dunes and lakes from several high spots. Peaceful settings among the patches of tuart forest and woodland, and sweeping views over the tranquil lakes, give the area a wilderness feel and attract an increasing number of visitors.

    The thrombolite-building micro-organisms of Lake Clifton resemble the earliest forms of life on Earth producing 'living rocks' that are found in only a very few places in the world.

    A fascinating place for lovers of wildflowers and other native flora and fauna. A day won't be long enough to explore this wonderful area.

    The city of Mandurah
    Just one hour's drive south of Perth, Mandurah and the Peel is one of the fastest growing regions in Australia. The holiday capital of Western Australia, Mandurah has an enormous range of activities that include water-based leisure, golf, wildlife parks and more.

    A short drive takes in white water rafting, skydiving, fabulous bush-walk and horse riding trails. There's the Forest Heritage Centre at Dwellingup, the famous Hotham Valley Steam Railway and the Bibbulmun Track.
