Perth to Mandurah Day trip by Train

Now that the train line from Perth has been completed, peaceful Mandurah is as popular a day-trip destination as ever. Located just 72 km south, Western Australia’s second-largest city is bordered by the Indian Ocean. Peel-Harvey Estuary and the Serpentine River, make it a naturally nautical place.  What started as a modest fishing village has turned into a thriving tourist destination. International visitors flock to its beaches and protected waterways for fishing and boating.

Mandurah by Rail

The Mandurah railway line is a hybrid suburban rail/rapid transit railway line on the Transperth Trains network in Western Australia that runs from Perth south to Mandurah. For part of its route, it traverses the median strip of the Kwinana Freeway.

Transperth Mandurah Train Line

Take the Transperth Mandurah train line from the Underground or Esplanade stations in Perth City. If you’re coming from the northern suburbs on the Clarkson line, your train will probably go directly to Mandurah after passing through the city. Once you arrive in Mandurah the last stop, catch one of the shuttle buses to the foreshore. 

The Perth to Mandurah railway is described as one of the most forward-thinking pieces of infrastructure development. The Transperth network has been using electric multiple-unit railcars exclusively ever since it was electrified.

Route Options

By car you have two options: the fast route is to take the Kwinana Freeway, exiting onto Mandjoogoordap Drive. This connects to Mandurah Road, which leads into the city centre. Otherwise, enjoy the scenic route along South Western Highway to Old Coast Road, which connects to Forrest Highway and then to Mandurah.

Mandjar bay

We headed down to Mandurah by train, a journey that takes only about an hour. Our first stop was for lunch at the Red Manna restaurant on the foreshore where we enjoyed a delicious lunch of fresh regional specialties and a great view of Mandjar Bay. Afterwards, we took a walk to the dock in front of the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre to catch one of the ferry cruises and tour the waterways. Perth to Mandurah Day trip by Train
