Dont miss!
Don't, whatever else you do in Mandurah, miss this gem of an experience if you want to know about Mandurah - past and present. The tour runs about 1-1.5 hours and is a leisurely stroll along the pretty esplanade overlooking Manjar Bay. The tale about how Mandurah and the Peel region became settled is a good one, as is the history of the village - fishing and canning explained and accentuated by the lovely public art which David used as props for his stories. We particularly enjoyed the story of the footbridge across to the Peninsula Hotel on Stingray Point and the drunks falling off it into the water - shame it is no longer here! You'll spend a fascinating hour getting the heritage of the place which is reflected in today's aqua-centred culture, and you will undoubtedly see the local resident dolphins and manna crabs. Best value ever - it's free!
