Over the New Year's break, The Mandurah Mail will be taking a look back at the year that was 2021.
Our annual 'Year in Review' will recount the biggest stories from each of the past 12 months.
Bindjareb artists paint visitor centre mural
The Mandurah Visitor Centre got a fresh, new look in December which included a massive 'Welcome to Country' art mural.
The visitor centre, together with the Western Australian Indigenous Tourism Operators Council (WAITOC), invited Bindjareb Boodja artists to submit artwork that reflected Mandurah.
The winning artwork, created by Peta and Corey Ugle, showcases the stunning waterways and abundant wildlife, flora and fauna that characterise the Mandurah region.
Mandurah resident wins entire super66 jackpot
Western Australia's run of lotto winners continued with a Mandurah woman winning the entire $128,221.75 Super66 jackpot.
The ticket, sold from The Mall Newsagency on Hay Street Hall, Perth, was the seventh Division One winning ticket sold in WA in December.
The woman bought her ticket while doing some Christmas shopping and couldn't stop shaking when she found out her ticket was a winner.
Mandurah couple win best lights display in WA
Meadow Springs resident Mary Kartesz-Wardroper and her husband Alan have taken home the title of 'best lights display' for their entry into the 2021 Synergy Xmas Lights Trail.
The 2021 trail had over 300 registered decorators, with displays spanning from south of the river to north of the river.
This year Mary and her husband Alan set up 400 different Christmas trees, a fairy room, Santa's workshop, snow, a Christmas carousel and Santa's express train - their house is now known to the Meadow Springs community as 'the Christmas House'.
