An Avocet Island Beach Hike from Wannanup to Mandurah

Perth, Australia

The Map

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started at the bus stop on Old Coast Road, Wannanup near Northport Boulevard (Google Map Directions) and ended at the bus stop on Pinjarra Road, Mandurah near Leslie Street (Google Map Directions).
  • Length: 16.7km (10.4mi) in about 4hr
  • 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 south as I did.
  • Date Walked: 2nd of April 2017
