Moore River is the perfect coastal and river playground, with a pretty hinterland of olive groves and wildflower country. Here, one of the oldest surviving cultures on Earth shares the story of its legendary water serpent, while regular holidaymakers from Perth enjoy its great outdoors.
It’s an easy one and a half hour drive north from Perth along the Brand Highway to reach Moore River, and a world away from the city.
The Moore River and estuary offer the ideal spots to indulge your passion for fishing and water sports, and you’re an easy day trip away from some of the region’s must-see attractions. Head for the world famous Pinnacles, in Nambung National Park near Cervantes, and marvel at one of Australia’s most unique landscapes, formed over millions of years. Catch some action at the windsurfing capital of Lancelin. Or step into the serenity of the Spanish missionary at New Norcia – Australia’s only monastic town.
The history of Moore River is equally as enchanting and dates back even further than the arrival of explorer and early settler of the Swan River colony George Fletcher Moore, who visited in the area in 1836.
Stay and enjoy the Wakal’s creation and choose from a range of family friendly accommodation options, from caravan parks to self-contained holiday homes and beach houses.
