LONG standing Mandurah restaurateur Gayle Lannetta, owner of Sunbreakers Restaurant, and her partner have bought one of Mandurah’s premier waterfront boardwalk eateries.
Newly renovated Stage Door Waterfront Restaurant’s grand opening last month unveiled one of the biggest hand-painted murals in a regional commercial building, measuring 11.5m x 2.5m.
Customers can now enjoy the ambience and intrigue of the artist’s impression or look the other way for frolicking dolphins.
The combination of Mandjar Bay views, local produce and art is expected to attract increased tourism opportunities, tourism and hospitality being the key to the City’s economy offering training and employment in a growing sector.
Prominent Mandurah artist Deborah Zibah, who has worked in a number of galleries around WA, created the mural.
The mural is expected to become a favourite backdrop for selfies and Facebook posts which could reach a global audience and with visitors placing love locks on the Boardwalk and exhibitions at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre, it goes hand in hand attracting new visitation to the art hub of the Boardwalk precinct.
While the mural was a big investment, food tourism is growing and so is the love of art.
With good quality affordable local produce being served and a new concept wine on tap that is growing in popularity, the stage is set for locals and visitors to the region to put the restaurant on the must-see bucket list.
