Mandurah Artificial Reef

The Mandurah Artificial Reef is in close reach to fisherman launching from either the Mandurah marina or heading out from the Dawesville cut. Using the same module design as both Bunbury and Dunsborough this reef has been working well for WA fisherman and has been producing some fantastic catches.
