Family Friendly Holidays: Jurien Bay

A beautiful coastal town that is less than 3 hours drive from Perth.

Jurien Bay is a small but vibrant crayfishing town located around 2.5 hours north of Perth, and around 20 minutes north of Cervantes. My family and I recently took a short trip to the Jurien Bay and found plenty to do with the kids during our stay.

Here are some of the things to do and places to stay with your family in Jurien Bay.

Accommodation Options

We stayed at the Jurien Bay Tourist Park in our camper trailer. There are powered and unpowered grassed sites and rock-based powered sites, so it’s best to check with the park before booking as to which will suit your rig the best.

Along with camp sites, the park also offers a range of self-contained holiday units that sleep from 2-6 people. The park’s facilities were clean and well maintained, while the kids were most entertained by the jumping pillow and beach and playground, which are on the park’s doorstep. There is a cafe onsite, while the park is a very short walk to a bakery, supermarket, two pubs and other restaurants and cafes.

Other accommodation options include the Jurien Bay Hotel, which offers a range of accommodation options for families, plus Jurien Bay Motel Apartments - 1 and 2 bedroom self-contained accommodation in the centre of town.

You can also rent holiday chalets, or find a private home for short-term rent during your stay - check out Air BNB and Stayz.
