From Perth to Mandurah
The drive from Perth to Mandurah takes less than an hour.
The high-speed option is via the Kwinana Freeway, taking the new, efficient entrance road into Mandurah: ‘Mandjoogoordap Drive’, meaning ‘meeting place of the heart’, the road’s name comes from the Indigenous Noongar people.
The freeway exit is well sign-posted, and this will connect you through to Mandurah Road, and into the centre of the city.
Alternatively, you could choose the more leisurely inland scenic route, travelling the South Western Highway via the native forests of the Darling Scarp, rolling farmland and some of the region’s award-winning wineries.
Approaching from the south, the Old Coast Road connects to Forrest Highway and links directly to Mandurah. Stay on the Forest Highway to get to Pinjarra.
