The new jetty at Jurien Bay always seems to attract plenty of visitors. The play area just to one side of the jetty is bustling with young children and set back from this is a large information board on the fauna, flora and geology of the area.
Sue and Bob Lewis from England, who are on a six-week trip to Western Australia, are studying its contents. Sue’s old school friend Linda Clayton, who lives in Dunsborough, has brought them to Jurien Bay for a two-night stay.
“I wanted to bring them here because I knew they would like the Pinnacles, and the ambience and feel of this place,” says Linda.
“It was a good choice, I really like it here because of the bio-diversity, the nearby desert and bush. Jurien Bay itself is a sleepy town but everyone is very welcoming, they certainly know how to look after their visitors,” explains Bob.
His wife Sue adds, “Yes, the landscape is amazing along with the food and service we’ve received at cafes, it’s been outstanding!”
“What we’ve noticed here in Jurien Bay is that the pace of life is much slower, it is phenomenally less crowded than other places and for us that just means a far more relaxed holiday.”
Remember those holidays you used to take where pleasures were a lot simpler? They still exist and you only have to drive a couple of hours north to enjoy them. Take a break from the stresses of city life and visit Jurien Bay.
