Binningup is a beautiful coastal town in the South West region of WA between Mandurah and Bunbury, and part of the Shire of Harvey. It is located approximately 144 kilometres from the Perth CBD and is a one and half hour drive down Kwinana Freeway.

Binningup is a popular tourist town and stopover point in the summer months thanks to its 40-kilometre stretch of white sandy beach sheltered by reefs. Swimmers love the non-polluted water and avid fishers enjoy catching tailor, yellowfin whiting, herring, flathead and salmon. If you enjoy getting up close with sea life, it’s the perfect spot to swim, snorkel, scuba dive or go boating.

Whilst being a tourist spot, there are also many attractions for local residents including a scenic golf course, a general store, caravan park, skateboard park, recreation centre, youth camp, public library and public oval. Binningup Golf Club is a challenging 9-hole course with a breathtaking backdrop of the Indian Ocean to the west and natural bushland to the east. Other activities just a short drive south include crabbing, sailing and windsurfing at Leschenault Inlet. If you prefer to indulge in nature, the Leschenault Peninsula Nature Reserve is a great place to spot kangaroos and other native wildlife at dusk.
