What to do...

A-MAZE-ing Peel

Walk through a life sized maze and surround yourself with the Peel Region in this one stop shop of all things local. If you're lucky, you might even snap up a prize or special offer from one of our local businesses.

LiveLighter - Move More

Discover a new activity in the LiveLighter Move More area. Join in with Tai Chi, or sample some of the sports on offer at the APES Games right on the foreshore. Whilst you are there why not 'pedal for your smoothie' or watch some of the mouthwatering health food demonstrations by the LiveLighter team.

Critters up Close

Get up close and personal with critters from land and water. Enjoy the touch pool starring Mandurah's famous blue manna crab, star fish, and much more, or learn about the different shells found on our beaches. With live demonstrations, Q&A, and the chance to touch and hold the animals Critters up Close is a crowd favourite!
