Mandurah’s annual arts festival has a diverse choice of free workshops,

Gallery, ‘Festival Square’ and the eastern foreshore.
Ken Walters, manager of the Hog’s Breath Cafe, moved to Mandurah from New
York three years ago. “Mandurah is a lot like San Diego would have been about
50 years ago but nowhere near as crowded,” he says. Here are some of his
favourite things to do in and around the water.
Dolphin spotting | Try the Dawesville Cut, Mandurah estuary and
the beach if you want to spot these amazing creatures.
Crabbing | The Mandurah estuary is ideal.
Kite-surfing | I’ve heard from professional kite surfers that it’s one
of the best spots in the world for this.
Surfing | There’s great surfing at Melros, Pyramids and Avalon beach.
Pyramids has a very unique wave as a result of the construction of the
Cut; it’s essentially a left-hander but its backwash creates another wave.
Live music | Mandurah gets great live music gigs because it now
has the venues to support them. Stick around for the entertainment
and then catch the train back to Perth.
