Port Bouvard was developed after the Government decided to cut a channel through the land at Dawesville to enable the Indian Ocean to flow into the 100 square kilometre Pell Inlet creating a second outlet to the ocean enabling the Peel Inlet to be regularly flushes and remove the buildup of algae. The channel would be approximately 2 km long and 400 metres wide creating a strong tidal movement several times each day. The natural entry to the Estuary and Peel Inlet is at Mandurah approximately 8 km north of Port Bouvard. The project was completed approximately 20 years ago and has resulted in huge improvement to water quality and the surrounding area has become a developers paradise.
The channel is now commomly known as the "Dawesville Cut", and has become a fishermans paradise.
Directions: From Mandurah travel south along Old Coast Road for approximately 8 km, passing through Florida then turn off just before you reach the bridge.
