Some of the region’s best, unique seafood experiences have been placed front-and-centre of an episode on the popular TV series Destination WA. 

The episode was the second installment of the Channel Nine travel program’s latest feature on the region. 

The two episodes have followed presenter and Mandurah’s own Christina Morrissy showing viewers examples of things to do in the region. 

On the latest episode, Ms Morrissy and her locally-based father discussed catching Western Rock Lobster on a Mandurah Cruises' Wild Seafood Experience cruise.

The first, titled "New Mandurah", aired on November 11. 

The story is one of four that Mandurah and Peel Tourism Organisation (MAPTO) have contracted the travel program Destination WA to produce. 

The remaining two stories are expected to feature food and beverage experiences and the region’s unique wetlands. 

Ms Morrissy and production company Guru Productions have been filming some of the region’s key tourism attractions over the past couple of weeks to produce the four stories.

The Destination WA segments are part of MAPTO's broader digital asset project, which will result in a significant digital asset library that will visually tell the story of the region being a highly desirable destination to live, work, visit and invest. 

In addition to the Destination WA stories, the project includes photo and video shoots throughout the region over the coming months.
