Cervantes and Jurien Bay are easily reached on the coastal route of Indian Ocean Drive, north from Wanneroo Road in Perth. A scenic 200km drive takes you straight to the Cervantes turnoff or the town centre of Jurien Bay is just 22km further. Badgingarra and Dandaragan are both accessed via the inland Brand Highway area routes. You can find maps for the region and each township here.

You can find more information about the attractions of each town from the 'Visitor Information' drop down menu above but for a truly diverse visitor experience, see what each town has to offer during your visit, with each location easily accessible as day trips from wherever you are based within the Shire.


The weather is temperate with a pleasant Mediterranean climate. December, January and February are the hottest months and maximum temperatures can reach 40° Celsius but sea breezes provide cool relief during these periods. Rainfall in the district ranges from 600 mm in the coastal areas to 350 mm in the inland area in the winter months - June, July and August - when the temperatures drop considerably but the mild climate makes this a perfect time to explore the region.
