Just half an hour's drive south of Perth, the coastal town of Kwinana is also easily accessible from Fremantle or Mandurah. The relaxed, rural setting means visitors can enjoy a beachside lifestyle without sacrificing urban convenience and modern facilities.
Three swimming beaches near the town are great for enjoying the clear waters of Cockburn Sound, or looking out across the sea to Garden Island. Sunsets at the beach are particularly splendid. Kwinana boasts pristine environmental assets such as Spectacles Wetlands, where boardwalks and nature trails allow visitors to explore the natural beauty without harming the environment.
From the lookout at Rotary Wildflower Park, take in spectacular views spanning the Darling Ranges and the Indian Ocean. Take a look into Kwinana's pioneer past with a tour of some of the metropolitan area's best examples of early settler farmhouses.
Picnic next to the beautifully restored Sloan's Cottage, or stroll through Leda Nature Reserve where bandicoots, possums, kangaroos and black-gloved wallabies can be seen in their natural habitat.
Kwinana International Motorplex offers both international Speedway and Drag Racing events throughout the year. Lodge style accommodation is available in Kwinana, as are many restaurants, pubs and cafes.
