DESCRIPTION

 

Lancelin is a cray fishing town on the coast north of Perth. It is a destination for many 4wd owners who spend many hours exploring and getting bogged in, the large dunes north of the town.

 

With the opening of the Indian Ocean Drive, it is now possible to drive right along the coast from Perth almost to Dongara. Lancelin, that was once 'at the end of the track', is now on a major tourist route and is slowly giving up its former sleepy town ways.

 

The beaches here are excellent and despite the new development, Lancelin is still a good place to sit back and relax. The proximity to Perth makes Lancelin very popular during peak season and it is wise to book ahead if you intend to stay, as the population increases by over 400%.

 

HISTORY

 

An island off shore was named by Captain Baudin in 1801 after P.F. Lancelin, a scientific writer.

 

First settlement in the area dates from the 1940s when the area was used as a summer recreation area for farmers from further inland.

 

The town site was gazetted in 1950 but under the name of Wangaree, an Aboriginal word meaning 'fish'. This was never adopted locally and by 1954 the name change to Lancelin was gazetted.
