Things To Do
Mandurah Skate Park
Recently opened in December 2020, the Mandurah Skate Park represents the evolving nature of Mandurah and the vision of our City. On the Western foreshore the space features social and leisure areas including grassed areas, elevated spectator seating with shelters, lighting, drinking fountains, a basketball half-court, and pedestrian connections to the wider area.
The national competition standard park on the western foreshore includes three skate zones for different skill levels, including a competition bowl area, for skaters, BMX, and scooter riders.
Eastern Foreshore Park
Situated on the Eastern foreshore close to the jetty the Pirate Ship departure point you’ll find a park that offers fun for kids of all ages. Fully shaded with a soft fall surface. The playground is full of slides, ladders, climbing walls and a tunnel to entertain toddlers and kids.
With inviting views over the estuary, BBQ’s, plenty of seating, shade and a good selection of bars and restaurants this playground is the perfect accompaniment to your pirate adventure.
Also located at the eastern foreshore. The markets run seasonally on Sundays in the warmer months, we suggest you click the link for current updates. http://www.mandjarmarkets.com.au/
Offering a unique selection of hand made gifts, award winning art & craft, fresh food and local gourmet goodies the markets never fail to disappoint. Located under large shady trees of the eastern foreshore with spectacular views over the Peel Inlet, if you are looking for a taste of all things Mandurah we certainly recommend this as a Sunday activity.
Mandurah Boat Hire
If you're feeling inspired to explore further canals after your pirate cruise, the Mandurah Boat & Bike Hire offer a range of boats for hire, with no skippers ticket required!
Alternatively if you fancy some light exercise why not hire a kayak or stand up paddle board. Mandurah offers an abundance of wildlife in its inland water ways making kayaking or paddle boarding an absolute pleasure.

King Carnival is situated on the beautiful Mandurah Estuary adjacent to the Anzac Memorial. Entertaining visitors and locals alike, it represents an iconic piece of Mandurah history having been operational for over sixty years. Hosting a mini golf course and activities from bungy trampolines to bumper cars it offers fun for all the family to complete the day after your pirate cruise.
With plenty of parking, or an easy stroll over the new bridge, we heartily recommend King Carnival in Mandurah. For further information head to https://kingcarnival.com/

Mandurah's Dolphin Quay is one of the many sights we see on the Pirate Cruise, and certainly worth a look as a landlubber. A selection of bars, restaurants and cafes await you as well as the Keith Holmes reserve with it’s very own pirate ship themed playground and mini beach area.
