MOUNTAINS OF SAND

Lancelin’s dunes were looking spectacular this afternoon with dark skies above. This weekend the dunes will be super busy as school holidays kick off with a long weekend so if you’re coming to town, remember you need to book your quad/buggy dune tours a day in advance on this website but you can book surfboards/SUPs and sandboards for same day use. The LDCA Buskers Festival is on on Saturday and… Read More

SHIRE BACKS DOWN OVER CLUB CLOSURES

More than 35 people from around the shire showed up at the monthly council meeting in Gingin on Tuesday August 18th to voice their anger about the Shire’s proposal to close both the Lancelin Golf and Bowls Clubs. The proposal came out of nowhere on Friday and was due to be voted through without incident, however, the enormous public backlash resulted in the shire meeting with representatives from both clubs… Read More

CARROTS APLENTY ON IOD

If you were heading north on Indian Ocean Drive around 10.30am this morning you would have found a plethora of carrots strewn all over the northbound lane just north of the Lancelin turn off. It’s unsure who  lost some of their load but anyone who owned a horse would have done well to get out there and grab their share of the uncrushed ones…. Read More

A WARM GLOW

While those of us who live in WA would probably have seen sunsets like this sort often, visitors from Asia in particular view it as a rare treat.  The Turquoise Coast draws more and more international visitors who are keen to experience something completely different to what they enjoy in their homeland. LANCELIN, READY AND WAITING FOR YOU! Visitors’ Guide is here – https://www.lancelin.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/lancelin_brochure_2020.pdf… Read More

WONDERFUL WA WEATHER

Those of you who drive Indian Ocean Drive often, know that scenes like this can appear at any time. This ultra-vivid rainbow was certainly a world beater. If you’re going to be in Lancelin soon, you will be warmly welcomed. There’s sand boarding and quad bike tours (book at www.lancelin.com.au), surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing (if the wind is up), long walks on the beach, sunset spectating at the lookout plus… Read More

GOT ONE OF THESE?

If so, the waters off Lancelin are perfect for getting out and about like this adventurous jet skier.   He parked his car on the Back Beach and launched his ski right there. That’s one of the main drawcards of Lancelin, being able to launch directly from the beach either near the jetty, along Cunliffe Street, at the north point or from the Back Beach.   Get a group together… Read More

THE IDEAL SPOT TO STARGAZE

Lancelin has very light pollution especially if you head north or south of the township, or wander out to one of the dunes. With so little ambient light, the stars simply “POP”! If you’re planning a trip to town (and if you’re not I highly recommend it), bring a blanket or a sleeping bag and a pillow, and fix your gaze on the stars on a clear night. You’ll be… Read More
