The name is thought by some to be an Aboriginal word meaning water hole, but another source says it is the name of the bob-tail
lizard. A large variety of names were suggested for this area including The Delta, Venice, Murray, Yoondooroop and Isleworth.
The Aboriginal name was selected and was gazetted as Yundurup in 1896. The current spelling was used from 1973.
The site is located on the delta at the mouth of the Murray River near Mandurah and is made up of North Yunderup and
It was one of the original canal developments in W.A. and has become a very popular place to retire. Houses line the water
ways and most have a small jetty with a boat moored alongside.
The area has a quiet laid-back feel to it and the main recreational activities here centre on the river and the Hardy Estuary beyond.
If you enjoy fishing then the sand banks are said to produce good sized whiting and of course the whole Mandurah area is
famous for the crabbing from December to March.
A number of picnic areas are dotted around the river and if you are looking for a quiet alternative to frenetic Mandurah then
Yunderup may be just your 'cup of tea'.
