:: This is Lancelin

is a charming Western Australian town known for its beautiful beaches and spectacular sand dunes. Originally Lancelin was known for its fishing industry, but over the past 25 years this secluded town has gained a reputation worldwide for it`s natural beauty and, as a perfect place for holiday makers. Here families, couples or singles, young or old each find their favourite spots and things to do. Only one and a half hours drive north of Perth, you will find tranquillity and outdoor activities.

Beautiful beaches
Reefs that protect the islands and crystal clear waters, all contribute to giving Lancelin the optimum conditions as a perfect place for your holiday. The beautiful white sand dunes also give Lancelin an exotic touch. Often dolphins visit the beaches, and a family of seals can also be observed in the bay. In the mating season humpback whales are seen outside the bay in open seas.
People from all over the world come here to enjoy the many activities such as surfing, kiting, windsurfing, paddling, sailing, snorkelling, scuba diving, swimming, sun bathing, fishing, jet skiing, sand boarding and naturally walking along the long white sandy beaches.

Lancelin Ocean Classic
Much of Lancelin's popularity among international tourists originates from the annual windsurfing event, Lancelin Ocean Classic. From the beginning of this event in 1986 until now, many of the world`s top windsurfers have made it for this spectacular event launched every second weekend of January. During the summer season many of them return to Lancelin with friends and family to enjoy what Lancelin has to offer.
From November until March both Australian and international tourists come to Lancelin. The peak season is December and January as this is when Australia has both school holidays and their Christmas break. In January the windsurfing event, Lancelin Ocean Classic attracts even more people, making Lancelin a busy spot for a short time. When the crayfishing season is over in June, Lancelin returns back to normal, when city dwellers come up from Perth to enjoy a quiet weekend on the beach.
