Nature Trails in Mandurah


If you’re looking for something new and different to do with friends or family, then a nature trail in Mandurah may be just the thing.

From the stunning coast to nature-filled national parks, the Mandurah and Peel region offer some breathtaking scenery, making for beautiful nature trails and hikes for the whole family.

Not only are nature trails beautiful, they give you a chance to spend quality time together, witness some incredible wildlife, take in some fresh, clean air and most importantly, find 30.

Here are some of our favourite nature trails to enjoy with your family.

 

Len Howard Conservation Park

Located on Len Howard Drive in Erskine, is Len Howard Conservation Park, a nature reserve perfect for viewing rare, native birds and wildlife in a scenic, family-friendly setting.

The beautiful wetland area is connected to the reserve which has walking trails around it and a grassed area for picnics.

Length: 1km

Time: Less than 1 hour

 

Island Point Reserve

With bush trails to wander and sheltered estuary beaches to swim in, you really get the best of both worlds at Island Point Reserve – land and sea.

There are two entry areas to launch small boats, picnic tables, electric barbecues and signage detailing the history, flora and fauna of the reserve.

Length: 3.3km

Time: Around 2 hours

 

Samphire Cove Reserve

The Samphire Cove Trail takes you through the gated nature reserve, and continues on to a long boardwalk over the wetlands, with a viewing platform and information panels at the end. It is not only an excellent spot for bird watching, it is also a great way to see some of the magnificent canal homes in Mandurah.

This reserve is habitat to 22 species of migratory birds too.

Length: 1.5km

Time: Less than 1 hour

 

King Jarrah Track

A walking trail fit for a king is none other than the King Jarrah Track.

The trail begins at the trailhead at Nanga Mill and can be walked in either direction. A highlight is the park’s namesake – a 250-year-old tree known as the ‘King Jarrah’.

This trail is a long one, so isn’t for the fainthearted and we don’t recommend walking unless you’re very physically fit.

Length: 18km

Time: Around 5 hours

 

So, what are you waiting for? 

At Frasers Landing, you can live amongst nature and enjoy walking trails like these every day, whilst still having the convenience of Mandurah city centre on your doorstep. That’s what we call the best of both worlds!
