What is this Region?
Located 75km south of Perth, Peel is Western Australia’s smallest region geographically. However, the City of Mandurah is the second fastest growing regional city in Australia.
People are attracted to the region by the natural and built environment it offers. The natural environment is a strong drawcard for the Peel region as it gives this region its distinctive, attractive character. It is also a critical component of the regional economy, particularly mainstream, experiential and environmental tourism.
The Peel Region is part of a climatic transition along the west coast of Western Australia from north to south towards cooler temperature and more consistent rainfall. With a coastal plain bordered inland by the Darling Scarp, the Peel Region is situated amongst the highest rainfall areas of South Western Australia.
The Peel region includes the local government authorities of: Boddington, Mandurah, Murray, Serpentine-Jarrahdale and Waroona.
