- There are a few new recent additions to the foreshore precinct, one of them being the Mandurah Performing Arts centre, which in many ways was the start of the redevelopment of the strip.
- The Mandurah Performing Arts Centre building was featured in the international Architecture year book, which showcases the best buildings in the world, now that’s something to be proud of.
- The wall along the foreshore walkway reflects the path of the Wagyl, as the inlet is where the Wagyl come to help the people during a time of drought.
- Along the walkway there is an array of street art, including beautiful statues that it is hard to not want to take a photograph with.
- The end of the foreshore is a real melting pot of history, it’s a great place to take in the sights and see how the city has grown and developed.
- The beautiful restaurant Bar Therapy now sits at the old Tuckey House at the end of the foreshore and is a beautiful location to sit and relax and watch over the foreshore.
- Take a trip down to Mandurah and discover the new Mandurah for yourself, you will be amazed.
