  • Great Park with large grass area, BBQ, sitting places, kids playground and a cafe. Got it all 😀
  • Great park and a nice beach to relax. Best in mornings.
  • lawn galore and beach at the doorstep. The people is very trendy and there is a cafe. What more can you ask?
  • Nice beach as well as grassed area good for picnics, etc.
  • Beautiful quiet beach south of Fremantle, easy to access on the free CAT bus. The sand isn't as white as the northern beaches and there are no waves for surfing but this makes is great for a swim. There's a couple of cafes, free BBQ's and plenty of grass to sit on though it can get very busy on the weekends over summer.
