Mandurah Dolphin Cruise or Rockingham Wildlife Encounter?

Hi,

We have only 5D4N in Perth with 11 and 8 yo children. Just wondering which is a better choice - Mandurah Dolphin Cruise or Rockingham Wildlife Encounter.

Noted that Rockingham is now closed for the penguins breeding season but the glass boat ride is still available.

Many thanks in advance.

I only tried Mandurah Dolphin cruise. It is more of a scenic cruise to see beautiful houses by the water, dolphin is at the last part, if lucky can spot a few.

if you happened to be at Mandurah, since there's not much activities there, then the dolphin cruise is not a bad option.

Hi wesoseek

Noticed that you did the sand boarding at lancelin. Do you have exact address for the sand dune. I read on TA that the address on the website is wrong. Also, where did you rent the sand boards? TIA.

Drive to lancelin town follow the road sign, there's a few shop in the town. We was too eager and stop by the 1st shop with petrol station to buy our lunch and spotted they also do the rental.

When you do the rental, the shop staff will tell you the exact location for the sand dune.
