The Jurien Bay Marine Park is located 200 to 300 kilometres north of Perth by road. It extends south from Green Head to the southern boundary of Nambung National Park (Wedge Island) and encompasses many of the islands located in this region.
With excellent fishing, diving, snorkelling and swimming, Jurien Bay Marine Park is a popular place for anyone who loves water-based fun.
Covering a pristine coastal strip between Wedge Island and Greenhead about a two to three hour drive north of Perth, the Jurien Bay Marine Park is known for its beauty and abundance of marine life.
Home to large colonies of rare Australian sea lions, Jurien Bay Marine Park also harbours seals, seabirds, western rock lobsters and a huge variety of fish.
On boat trips to watch sea lions you’ll see whales migrating along the coast, and dolphins frolicking offshore.
Snorkelling and diving in this area is first rate and scuba diving charters are available from the town of Jurien Bay.
A small section of the park is a sanctuary but fishing, swimming and diving are allowed in the majority of the marine park area.
A number of small islands are scattered through the marine park – go boating and explore these and nearby reefs.
The town of Jurien Bay boasts a modern boat harbour and supports a large scale Cray fishing industry.Visit Website
