They don't guarantee a dolphin sighting (fair enough!) but most times of the year passengers do get to see them. We were treated to a spectacular display of their flips as they try race along the side of the boat, and then they hide for a while and come out again - was just awesome.
The cruises run almost every hour and go for an hour and cost $28 per person. During the lunch hour, for an extra $12, the Captain will stop at the famed Nino's and pick up the pre ordered fish n chips which were delicious.
The commentary was informative, especially on the creation of the artificially created Venetian canals, 80 year old Moreton Bay fig tree, the migratory birds and million dollar homes with their own jettys.
Dome cafes were started in Perth almost two decades ago, with almost 100 outlets in 6 countries today. With their signature domed ceilings, wood panelling and deep leather armchairs, it has a very inviting feel. We had a latte ($4) , Darjeeling leaf tea ($4) and a chocolate mousse cake with a dollop of cream ($6.95). Service was exceptional and quick. The menus have beautiful photographs with good descriptions and prices. You order and pay at the counter and they bring the food to you.
You can spend five minutes outside the building admiring it and I was not surprised to read that it was mentioned in the International Architecture Year Book, which showcases the best public buildings around the world. The Art Gallery had a free exhibition by contemporary Nyungar artists on display coinciding with the Mungah Festival. Upcoming events include Taiko (Japanese drumming) and a show by Guy Sebastian.
4.Mandurah Bike & Boat Hire
Located very conveniently on the foreshore, they rent out push bikes starting from $10 an hour and dinghy boats from $50 an hour. This is great for a visitor, as you may want to cycle around or even hire a boat. The calm waters of the estuary make it perfect for a beginner as well. The waters are also famous for the blue swimmer crab making it quite popular during the Crabfest in March. 8195; 5.Shopping in Smart Street Mall
This is a pedestrian only street with shops on both sides. You have a wide variety of shops ranging from home wares, swimwear, souvenirs, a "fairy shop" (little girls would love this one) and an art gallery to name a few. Emma Blyth, the artist, does very colourful work which she has even got printed on mouse mats($12) and stubby holders ($10) if you don't want to buy a traditional piece of wall art.
6. Peel Estate Winery Unfortunately as power was out in the area due to a fierce storm, I couldn't get any pictures. Around 21 km from Mandurah is the one of the oldest wineries in this region. Started almost 30 years ago, they have perfected the Shiraz Cabernet which grows well in this Mediterranean like climate, just 3 km away from the Indian Ocean. This was the first wine tasting we had done in the dark (the storm had cut electricity to thousands of houses in the area) but our warm hostess, Julie, made it enjoyable. The 7 year aged Shiraz sells for $19 which is excellent value.
