Mandurah Foreshore Heritage Walk

Join a trip down memory lane taking in the sights along the Mandurah foreshore. Experience an exciting, vibrant heritage walk through old Mandurah led for the first time by the museum curator.

Mandurah was originally called Mandjoogoordap by the original inhabitants, the Binjareb tribe of the Bibulmun Nation. Mandjoogoordaap means meeting place of the heart and this was an ideal place to gather because of the abundance of fish, berries and wildlife. Different tribes would travel long distances to get here for festivals and important gatherings.

One of the highlights of the tour is Christ’s Church Anglican Church. When it was built 1871, due to a shortage of carpenters, the roof was constructed by local boat builders and thus the view of the roof from inside may look a little odd! Lean about how many of the early settlers are buried in the church yard including Thomas Peel and of the isolated grave of Binjareb Elder George Winjan.

Visit this and other local heritage attractions on this leisurely one hour walk.
