Hi Soo P
We live in Mandurah which is quite a way south of Perth. Joondalup Resort is in the Perth metropolitan are bu is about a 25 minute drive north of the city centre. It is a lovely resort on a world renowned golf course. There are beaches not far away as well. Hope this helps.
Kind regards Anne
