Mandurah was a small fishing town located 80 km south of Perth on possibly the best estuary and inlet in Australia. During the 1970's the first residential canal syatems were constructed and known as Waterside. Development was slow until during the 1990's the Port Mandurah residential canal system was promoted and now Mandurah boasts the best residential canal system in Australia. Luxury homes and boats abound, the Peel Inlet has 100 square kilometers of waterways with entrances to the Indian Ocean through Mandurah Estuary and the Dawesville Cut.
The small fishing town is now a thriving city having the largest population growth in Australia. People are drawn to Mandurah by its laid back lifestyle, magnificent waterways, pleasant weather, safe surf beaches and plentiful fishing and crabbing. The final canal developments, Mariners Cove, is nearing completion, however there is ample land left with either Indian Ocean or Peel Inlet views.
Mandurah is now a small city and has the infrastructure that comes with a city, in fact it has some facilities which other cities would be jealous of such as the Mandurah Arts Centre which has a theatre where visiting artists perform weekly. All water sports are well covered, all major football codes, Australian Rules Football, Rugby Union and Soccer are represented. Restaurants and shops abound, parklands and playcentres, festivals throughout the year such as Crab Fest draw tens of thousands of people to the district.
The canals are a highlight and have attracted many people from Perth and country districts to live the relaxed canal lifestyle , some in retirement others willing to commute to their workplace.
