Overview

Wildflower meadows ablaze with colour, ancient rock formations and sweeping stretches of powder-white sand – Jurien Bay’s beauty is the perfect backdrop for a fun-filled adventure. Dive beneath the surface of this protected marine park to explore underwater caves and coral gardens, then spot rare Australian sea lions sunning themselves on the shoreline.

Pack flippers and fishing gear to make the most of this activity-packed stretch of coastline. Just a 2.5-hour drive north from Perth, this friendly seaside town offers easy access to several outstanding diving and snorkelling sites within Jurien Bay Marine Park.

Join a boat tour to come face-to-face with the fascinating creatures who call this pristine habitat home, including dolphins, sea lions and humpback whales.

Head beyond the underwater attractions of Jurien Bay to explore the unique lunar-like landscape of Nambung National Park. Formed over millions of years, thousands of soaring limestone spires – known as the Pinnacles – reach skywards from the yellow desert sands. Witness this enchanting environment at sunrise or sunset to feel like you’ve entered another world.

Stroll among the wildflowers at Lesueur National Park, where more than 900 native species perfume the air, and pitch a tent right on the beach at Sandy Cape Recreational Park for a coastal camping experience like no other. Spend sunny days swimming and, as evening arrives, listen to the soothing sound of the surf breaking on the beach.
