An Avocet Island Beach Hike from Wannanup to Mandurah, Perth, Australia
2nd of April 2017
Heading south to hike along the Indian Ocean coastline of Avocet Island.
- Location: Avocet Island and Mandurah, Perth, Western Australia, Australia
- Start or End: I started at the bus stop on Old Coast Road, Wannanup near Northport Boulevard and ended at the bus stop on Pinjarra Road, Mandurah near Leslie Street (I contemplated walking all the way to Mandurah Train Station, but decided to stop short and take the bus).
- Length: 16.7km (10.4mi)
- Grade: Easy to Medium. It is possible to walk the whole way on the pavement, but before the cycleway (west of Boardwalk Boulevard, Halls Head) you will get better views along the beach (but obviously harder walking conditions). East of Boardwalk Boulevard on the cycleway you can take the whole walk along the path and still get great views. The walk is long, but you can reduce the length by not starting as west as I did.
