Why Mandurah Beats the French Riviera

Why Mandurah Beats the French Riviera

Tom Parker Bowles, British food critic (and Prince Charles’ step-son), was in Mandurah recently in his new role as producer of Channel Nine’s new foodie reality tv series, The Hotplate.

As he was filming with Western Australian contestants Conrad and Liam at their Mandurah waterfront restaurant Duck Duck Moose, he looked up over Mandjar Bay and reportedly quipped – ‘Keep the French Riviera: this is the place to be!’

As well as confirming what we’d always thought, this set us thinking: could we list the 10 top reasons why Mandurah beats the French Riviera?

Keep calm and giddy up!

Keep calm and giddy up!

At the Boddington Lions Rodeo you’re so close to the action that it’s impossible not to get excited. Bull riding is one of the highlights of the rodeo.  The ground shakes as the angry, heavy bull kicks the ground. The cowboys ready themselves in anticipation of the struggle. The danger is almost palpable. After a short struggle the cowboy flies off the victorious bull and a puff of red dust fills the air as he crashes to the ground. There’s so much activity, colour, passion, motion and adrenaline in the air that you can almost taste it.

Let the sea set you free

Let the sea set you free

To cruise or not to cruise… that is the question. In the end we decided to cruise, and I don’t regret it at all! I had the opportunity to forget about work, stress and everything else for 1 hour. How lucky am I?

We were invited by Mandurah Cruises to enjoy the adventure of a 1 hour scenic canal cruise around the beautiful and charming Mandurah waterways and I have to say, what a perfect break the daily routine.

She's got my name on her

She's got my name on her

As a newbie to Mandurah (and someone who doesn’t yet own a boat, canoe, kayak, jetski, wakeboard, you-name-it) I was keen to go to the Mandurah Boat Show and see what it was all about. As I figured we’d eventually get a water craft of some kind, the Boat Show struck me as exactly the right place to be to suss all this out. Might there be a boat there with my name on it?

New Mandurah friends invited us to go to the boat show - by boat - as you do here - and we commenced the quest with a fortifying lunch of fish at Catch 22 Restaurant after parking the neat craft alongside said restaurant. Great, I figured. With a bit of training, I could do that, I thought.

On entering the boat show, armed with a 2014 program which proclaimed I was about to encounter ‘a festival of boating,’ I didn’t know where to start. This was a happening place - demonstrations of gear, fish filleting, cooking, watercraft, dry docking systems, and, best of all, there was stuff here I’d never seen before - let alone dreamt of - like jet surfs!
