Jurien Bay

Visitor Centre:

Bashford Street
General:
Jurien Bay could aptly be named the ‘Jewel of the Central West Coast’. It is the centre of a newly formed Marine Park. The town is the largest along this stretch of coast and is very popular as a holiday, tourist and fishing resort. It has beautiful, long, wide beaches protected by offshore islands and reef, safe for swimming, water skiing, sail-boarding, snorkelling, scuba diving and surfing (out in the bay and north of the bay).

Jurien Bay is noted not only for its lobster industry but as a great place for large catches of dhufish, snapper, groper, tailor and others by boat. From the jetty, beach or marina groins, young and old anglers spend many rewarding hours fishing. Crabbing is worthwhile too!
History:
Jurien Bay was named by Commodore Nicholas Baudin in 1801, honouring Charles Jurien of the French Naval Administration, who later received the title of Baron Vicomte. In the latter part of the last century wheat, wool, coarse grains, bat manure, manna gum, kangaroo, cattle and horse hides were shipped from the jetty, built in 1885.
Attractions:
The Pinnacles

Pinnacle tours from Cervantes or self drive (includes cars and buses) expeditions are available. A CALM admission fee applies.

Mt Lesueur National Park

A thirty minute drive away is Mt Lesueur National Park. The shrub lands have more species per unit than any vegetation site known in the state.
Two hundred of the eight hundred and twenty species have special conservation significance and some are found nowhere else in the world.
