Hello! Today, I’m going to continue on our Perth travelogue! You can catch up on the past 2 posts here :
The morning we were supposed to head down south, we woke up bright and early, excited about the upcoming trip. It was our first road trip together, and the both of us have been looking forward to this so much!
We packed our luggages, checked out of the hotel, squeezed the bags into the Corolla Ascent, and first headed for breakfast – Jesters Pie at Winthrop Shopping Centre.
I remember during my one year there, I never ate a bite of Jesters. Not because I didn’t like it, but rather, I didn’t knew of its existence. It was only in my 2009 trip back there with my friends that I realised such good pies existed!
With our stomachs full, we jumped into our car and set off!
Our planned itinerary was supposed to take us to Mandurah first for a night, and then onwards further down south to Margaret River and Augusta! Luckily for us, the traffic was relatively light and we enjoyed a leisurely 110 km/h cruise down towards Mandurah!
We reached the town of Mandurah too early for us to check in, so took a roam around the quiet town. I must admit, during the day when everyone is out at work, Mandurah indeed looks and feels like a ghost town.
Surprisingly, all their houses look unoccupied. See why I said it felt like a ghost town?
Soon, it was time for check in, and we trotted back to our hotel – Seashells Resort Mandurah.
This blog post will be mostly on Seashells – one of the best resorts/hotels we’ve ever stayed in. If you’re looking for a reasonably priced accommodation in the town of Mandurah, you must check out Seashells!
Seashells Resort – Mandurah
16, Dolphin Drive
Mandurah, WA 6210
Seashells Resort Mandurah houses both self-contained apartments as well as villas. We booked the 1-bedroom apartment for our night’s stay there, and were really awed by it.
We went out to further explore the town, and grabbed lunch at the ever-popular Cicerello’s! I think after this trip, I personally prefer Cicerello’s over to Kailis.
Because we had the luxury of a self-contained apartment, we decided to cook our own dinner instead of heading out to find food in that very ghostly quiet town. So off to Coles we headed before going back to prepare!
And to end off this post of our stay at Mandurah, here’s a shot of an ocean-view sunset as we had our dinner of smoked salmon, chicken sausages, mushrooms and scrambled eggs, complete with the bottle of Shiraz.
Stay tuned for our adventures down at Margaret River!
