The townsite of Jurien is the largest along this stretch of the coast and is very popular as a holiday, tourist and fishing destination. It is situated 226kms north of Perth via the coastal Indian Ocean Drive, which is a leisurely 2 hour drive.
The modern inland marina provides mooring for a well maintained fleet and incorporates excellent concrete launching ramps for all types of boats. The long, safe and sheltered beach is in front of our Park and boasts shimmering water of turquoise and cobalt blue. It is ideal for swimming, water skiing and sail boarding or to lie back and enjoy the beautiful ocean views. There is a fantastic childrens playground right on the beach.The late afternoon brings with it magnificent sunsets which may be admired from the new jetty across the expansive bay.
The weather is temperate with a pleasant Mediterranean climate. December, January and February are the hottest months and maximum temperatures can reach 40° Celsius but sea breezes provide cool relief during these periods. Rainfall in the district ranges from 600 mm in the coastal areas to 350 mm in the inland area in the winter months - June, July and August - when the temperatures drop considerably but the mild climate makes this a perfect time to explore the region.
