Holiday accommodation on the picturesque coast of Western Australia
Situated close to the Western Australia shoreline and the Mandurah Estuary, the Mandurah Holiday Village is positioned in a part of the city that allows for simple and quick access to many of the attraction on offer.
Mandurah, which is the second largest city in the state of Western Australia, is located approximately 74 kilometres north of Perth. Its a popular destination for international and domestic travellers thanks to its picturesque beaches and abundant marine life.
The 3-star establishment consists of 55 two-bedroom villas, all of which come equipped with kitchen and lounge/dining area. Those based on the ground floor open onto gardens and courtyards, whilst those higher up have private balconies on which to enjoy the view.
Kitchens are fitted with an oven, stove and microwave, and include cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils, whilst bedroom and living area feature standard hotel amenities. Bathrooms are modern and contain showers and/or bathtubs.
Bedrooms are able to accommodate up to eight persons, making this a suitable family destination. Maintaining the family-friendly theme, the hotel is equipped with a heated outdoor swimming pool and childrens playground, both of which are ideal to entertain younger children. Those a little more grown-up might enjoy a game of tennis or an afternoon of lounging in the hotels spa.
The hotel complex also provides complimentary car-parking as well as a location in which to unload and park aboat and trailer.
Whilst the Mandurah Holiday Village has a certain amount of entertainment on offer, guests may be pleased to discover that the resort is just a five minute walk to the beach. With the Indian Ocean lapping against the beautiful white sands, its hard to argue against this being a fine locale in which to comfortably relax under beaming sun rays.
The seas themselves, as well as the Mandurah Estuary, are alive with marine life. From the inquisitive dolphins to the migrating whales, from pelicans to the blue Manner Crab, there are plenty of species to keep an eye on. Unsurprisingly, these waters are also favoured recreation spots. As well as boat tours, which are the best way to whale-watch, its not uncommon to see people fishing, swimming or canoeing.
During December, the canal ways are decorated with celebratory lights. As such, its a popular activity to board a boat and head down the channels to view these spectacular lights.
The town itself features a number of shopping districts in which visitors can hunt out new fashions or souvenirs, or dine at a restaurant. Bars and pubs are on hand for those that fancy a break from the retail therapy.
As with many other Australian settlements, Mandurah has is fair share of parks and gardens. Many of the green areas that can be found in the region double-up as nature reserves. This produces the opportunity for visitors at the Mandurah Holiday Village to see some of the countrys magnificent, unspoiled flora and fauna. Of course, those that fancy a trip into the big city will find that Perth is just an hour or so drive away.
