The Jurien Bay Marine Park is located 200 to 300 kilometres north of Perth by road.
This pristine coastal strip 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.
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. The marine park is in the path of whales as they migrate each year along the western coast of Australia. On boat trips to watch sea lions you can be lucky enough to 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 marine park is managed by Parks and Wildlife in partnership with the local community. The town of Jurien Bay boasts a modern boat harbour and supports a large scale cray fishing industry.
Accessible all year
