As the go-to holiday spot of Western Australia, Jurien Bay – a two hours’ drive north of Perth – is becoming world-renowned. And so it should be, with its pristine beaches, colourful offshore reefs and underwater caves. September sprinkles carpets of wildflowers in Lesueur National Park – while there are unique yellow lunar sandscapes and pillars at Pinnacles of Nambung National Park. And make a date with the rare Australian sea lions resident at Jurien Bay Marine Park. After indulging in so much nature, you’ll need a comfy place to rest your weary limbs. Choose a stay in one of these great hotels in Jurien Bay – bookable on Culture Trip.

Staying here, you couldn’t be better placed – slap-bang in the middle of town and mere minutes from the jetty and foreshore. Welcome to some of the Bay’s most awesome studio spaces as well as one and two-bedroom self-contained accommodation. Chilling with your feet up on your balcony or courtyard, the only competition these bright, spacious contemporary living spaces have is the outside sky and sea – blue on blue. Investigate the surrounding quirky shops, savour a morning brew at the cafes, or splurge on a meal of fresh crayfish in the restaurants.

Stars and serenity at the Heights Bed and Breakfast

You don’t just escape the city at this peaceful bed and breakfast – a 10-minutes drive inland, you’re immersed in bushland. The soundtrack consists of birdsong – many kinds – and the thump of kangaroos hopping on the lawns as they play. Guests sleep super-soundly at night in plush en-suite rooms, rising to dawdle over complimentary breakfast in the café, basking in the serenity. Head out to explore the Coral Coast. Back at the ranch, take in the star-dusted skies – recounting your activities over cold wine and beer.

Jurien Bay Tourist Park, for sailboarding and sunbathing

This prominent spot hugs the longest stretch of town coast and you’ll find a range of modern, comfortable, pet-welcoming one and two-bedroom self-contained holiday chalets. If you’re more intrepid, consider using the caravan and camping sites. Splash or sailboard in the sheltered azure waters that lap the park, then flop on the sands to tan in the sun – it’s a pastime to stroll the inland marina and marvel at the boats. Everything is on your doorstep here, including shops, cafes, restaurants and attractions.

Sit on the deck of this very agreeable chalet and let the stunning sunsets soothe your work woes away. It’s that kind of pulse-slowing place – a family home away from home. You only need to bring clothes and provisions, as everything else is laid on – this is the ideal bolthole for accessing local activities. Enjoy the nearby skate park, golf club, jetty and harbour – or go charter fishing for your dinner. Skydive to see nature’s delightful colours from above, snorkel the colourful reefs below or hike the trails. It’s all here to explore.

A few steps from the jetty and skate park is this stylish three-bedroom unit, filled with everything a family or couple could ever need.

Caught some local fish? Slap it on your barbecue and dine in the surrounding garden picnic area. Don’t forget to spend time absorbing the colourful evening skies – it’ll do wonders for mind and soul.

Bright, light and airy, the cool coastal colourings enhance its status as a peaceful, hidden haven – a welcome respite from life’s hassles and headaches. Had enough of sticky sand? Crash out beside the sparkling swimming pool or relax in the private garden. Fancy sizzling sausages instead of fish? There’s a barbecue at hand, too. Whatever else you want to see or do, all the attractions and action are just a short drive away.

Here’s another time-worn little two-bedroom home away from home. The jetty, town shops, restaurants and cafes are five minutes away if you feel like moving – but this place invites utter indolence. Put your feet up on the deck and leave the sea breezes and golden sunsets to work their hypnotic magic on you. There are cool tiled floors to pad about on, crisp fresh linens to rest your head on and soft leather upholstery to laze days away on. Your only possible dilemma is whether to cook and eat breakfast, lunch or dinner inside or outside on the barbecue. Don’t word – you’ll resolve it.
