Getting the Winter blues and need to get out? Here are 6 things to do in Mandurah when it's wild and woolly. Add your favourite things to do in Mandurah in the Winter to the list!
MARKETS AT DOLPHIN QUAY
Why not jump in the car and head to the markets at Dolphin Quay? The markets are open 7 days a week from 9am - 5pm and there is ample parking close to the market. Don't forget your umbrella though for that short walk from the carpark to the market! This is a great way to get out of the house on a rainy day. There is lots to do at the marina from having a stroll through the markets, to grabbing something to eat or sipping on a hot chocolate in one of the many cafes that surround the markets.
A HOT CHOCOLATE AT SAN CHURRO
San Churro which is located near the Performing Arts Centre at 4/73 Mandurah Terrace does the most divine Hot Chocolate with chocolate stirring spoons. You get to choose what type of Hot Chocolate you want to boot! Choose from milk, dark or white. I tried mine with a peanut butter melt which you stir into your drink. It's a nice touch and something a little different. But be warned it's very sweet. San Churro has amazing views across the estuary. A perfect place to sit with your Hot Chocolate of choice and watch the rain in the comfort of rustic surroundings.
$15 WINTER WARMERS FROM SUNBREAKERS
Sunbreakers situated at 110 Mandurah Terrace is offering a Winter Warmer Special for $15 at both lunch and dinner. Meals included in this special are Chicken Parmy, Vindaloo Curry, Beef and Guinness Pie and Battered Barra. If you want to indulge yourself a little, Sunbreakers has lovely surrounds and a great ambience. This offer is not available with any other discount or Bartercard.
DRAG OUT THE BOARD GAMES (THAT INCLUDES TWISTER!)
Yep, you know you've got them somewhere! Monopoly, Twister, Connect 4, Trivial Pursuit, Pictionary, Jenga, Scrabble, Clue! Yep they are all classics and you are sure to own at least one of them. This is a great way for the family to spend some time together when its wild and woolly outside as well as have a few laughts along the way! Best of all it's free.
WHEN IN DOUBT HEAD TO THE MOVIES!
Yes the movies can be an expensive option but it is one way to stay warm when it is raining and cold out. If you go to Reading Cinemas, they have some deals on which make the movies a little bit more affordable. Reading Cinema's offer Terrific Tuesday, Early Birds and Friday Flicks.
