Jurien Bay: Crystal Waters and Ancient Caves


Jurien Bay, the “Jewel of the Coral Coast”, is becoming an increasing popular holiday destination in Western Australia, with ample fishing opportunities and plenty for families to do. The town began as a crayfish and lobster fishing hub in the 1850s and still holds its own in the industry today. Visitors with small children will appreciate calm, protected swimming beaches and lovers of the great outdoors can explore the national parks next door, which boast lookout points over the turquoise water and the islands right off the shore. Holiday homes with quick beach access and rental apartments with beautiful views of the lush hinterland are available in and around town.


Beachfront Activities in Jurien Bay


Jurien Bay’s beaches are wide and covered in soft sand, creating the perfect environment for families to play and relax. Crystal clear, calm waters ensure you can let your little ones frolic about with peace of mind. Opportunities to take part in water sports are countless, with snorkelling and scuba diving as local favourites. Rent some gear or join a tour and hit the reefs that hug the shoreline for glimpses of this colourful underwater world. Meanwhile, if you’d like to look at the reefs from a different perspective, you can go skydiving over the beach, jumping out of a plane at 14,000 ft. Beyond the coast is Jurien Bay Marine Park, considered a vital Australian breeding ground for sea lions and a prime nesting location for birdlife. You can take part in an organised tour to get close to these marine creatures and learn all about them.


Fishing in Jurien Bay


Many travellers come to Jurien Bay with the sole purpose of fishing, and anglers have a variety of spots to choose from. If you’d like to remain on solid ground, you can fish from the historic jetty, built in 1885. Fisherman can often be seen casting their line on the beach, too. If you’d like to make an all-day adventure of it, head to the open sea on board a charter or your own boat. If you are bringing your own vessel to Jurien Bay, you’ll find plenty of docks and mooring open to the public.


Jurien Bay’s National Parks


Beyond the coastline, the Jurien Bay region is rife with national parks allowing visitors to explore the hinterland. If you’re a budding botanist, head to Lesueur National Park, which is home to over 900 types of plants and flowers. Stroll through the colourful landscape or make the trek up to the park’s lookout points for panoramic views of the coast. Drovers Cave National Park is another reserve in the region where you can get close to quite a few caves. Various fossils have been found at Hastings Cave, in particular. While it is not currently possible for the public to enter the grottos, you can learn all about the region’s geology of yesteryear during your visit to the park. Meanwhile, if you would like to stroll along a 300m long-underground creek, visit Stockyard Gully National Park.


Attractions in Town


The bustling town centre of Jurien Bay features a number of cafes and restaurants, where you can people watch or chat with locals. If you’re visiting the area on the last Sunday of the month, you’ll be able to attend the Lions Club Market, where you can buy homemade treats, jewellery, toys and clothes while getting to know the region’s craftsmen. For a glimpse into Jurien Bay’s past, you can go see the ruins of the town’s original jetty, 65m inland, which highlights geological changes to the coastline over the last two centuries. Finally, if you’re able to schedule a break in November, you can attend the Blessing of the Fleet Festival, which began as a blessing of Jurien Bay’s prized crayfish fleet in the olden days and has morphed into a festival for the whole family, with fashion shows, games, friendly competitions and plays.


Getting to Jurien Bay


Travellers from around the country come to Jurien Bay. The easiest way to reach the coastal town is to fly to Perth and rent a car. However, if you don’t wish to drive, you can take a direct coach departing the WA capital. Make sure to plan your transport to Perth in advance, as bus services only operate a few times a week.
