History of Port Mandurah
PMRA has formed a sub-committee to gather the history of the Port Mandurah Canal Estate. A brief outline has been prepared and contributions have already been sought and supplied from Cedar Woods, the City of Mandurah and from
our own records.
This area has a fascinating early history, some brilliant conserved assets, some colourful opposition during development, battles with bureaucracy and a wonderful success story
to record. Any residents who may wish to contribute content, suggestions, (printable) anecdotes, good quality photographs, sales documents or whatever will be welcomed.


Christmas Lights Update

Port Mandurah residents were invited to a Christmas Lights community discussion with Mayor Rhys Williams in February to discuss the opportunities and challenges regarding Christmas lights and the canals. In a follow-up letter to attendees, Mayor Williams outlined the commitment by Council to the 8 points below:

1. Support the Port Mandurah Residents Association with funding to develop an information brochure and map of the canals, 
2. Form a working group made up of WA Police, Mandurah Volunteer Marine Rescue,
Port Mandurah Residents Association and City of Mandurah, to establish a coordinated approach to addressing safety Issues,
3. Install temporary buoys down the middle of the main canals for the purpose of boat traffic management,
4. Install Christmas lighting installations to both sides of the main traffic bridges within the Port Mandurah Canals (dependent on access to a power source being made available via Western Power),
5. Increase Christmas lighting in the inlet and throughout City Centre,
6. Explore options for including a Christmas Flotilla as part of the annual Mandurah Christmas pageant,
7. Explore additional festive pop-up events to reinforce Mandurah as destination for
Christmas festivities, and
8. Work with tourism operators and promoters to promote Mandurah as the place to be for Christmas festivities.

The PMRA committee is seeking updates from the Mayor as we progress towards December. If you're interested in contributing to a Christmas Working Party in any way, please email us.

The City of Mandurah has thrown its support behind a plan to design and implement a Christmas lights display that flows from one side of the city centre to the other.
