Jurien Bay is a blissfully relaxed fishing town just a two-and-a-half hour drive north of Perth.
It’s a beautiful place to spend a week or two in the sunshine - the beaches are long and sandy, the water abundant with fish and there are offshore reefs and islands to explore.
Sheltered by a string of islands and reefs, Jurien Bay is home to a healthy Cray fishing and rock lobster industry.
The western rock lobster’s tasty reputation has made it a multi-million dollar industry, with shipments regularly sent to Japan and the United States.
Limestone reefs and caves are covered with colourful sponges and are home to a big variety of fish. Jurien Bay Marine Park is where you’ll see whales migrating each year along the coast.
Join a fishing charter or get up close and personal on a cruise visiting sea lions, dolphins and whales.
To see the West Australian bush first hand head to Lesueur National Park, just half an hours drive from town.
It’s well worth doing the 18 kilometre scenic drive – complete with roadside viewing stops for photo opportunities.
In season, 900 species of native flora make Jurien Bay one of the most wildflower rich areas in the world.
Jurien Bay: Where To Go / Sightseeing
A short drive north is Sandy Cape Recreational Park, an idyllic beachfront campsite with some of the world’s best swimming, coastal walks and beach fishing.
A must-see nearby experience is the spectacular Pinnacles Desert. It’s a wild, rugged place unlike anywhere else in the state.
In the heart of Nambung National Park, thousands of huge limestone pillars rise out of a stark landscape of white sand, some reaching three-and-a-half metres tall.
Visit at sunrise or sunset for a most spectacular view.
