Mullaloo Beach

mullaloo beach

Mul­laloo Beach belongs to the Perth coastal suburb of Mullaloo. It’s name comes from an Abo­rig­i­nal word mean­ing ‘Place of the Rat Kan­ga­roo’ and ‘Kan­ga­roo Water­ing Hole’. This makes it sound like Mullaloo Beach, at some point, may have had some Rottnest Island quokkas living in the sand dunes. There must have been a lot of wild kangaroo’s bouncing around the place also.

Mullaloo Beach is just a standard Perth beach to the locals. But tourists who visit it comment that it is like a famous paradise beach with perfect white sand and crystal clear, super-clean water.

Enjoy a swim at the beach, or a beer at the Mullaloo Beach Hotel, or a coffee at the Dome Cafe situated underneath the hotel.


Trigg Beach

Trigg Beach is one of Perth’s most popular beaches for surfboarding and bogey-boarding. There are a small majority of swimmers, due to the number of boards always surfing. In summer, shifting sands fill the channel between the Blue Hole and Trigg Point for an awesome long continuous wave ride into Trigg Beach.

There is also a snorkeling beach close by to Trigg Beach called Mettams Pool. It is best to park a few kilometres north of Trigg Beach, just off West Coast Drive, for the best snorkelling in Perth.

Burns Beach

Burns Beach is a fantastic, isolated beach, 34km north of Perth. The land at Burns Beach was originally owned by the Midland Railroad Company. In 1908, following a request from 50 local residents, the Wanneroo Road Board (which eventually became Wanneroo City Council) successfully applied for a 20-hectare (49-acre) reserve for camping and a health resort. By the 1920s, the area was well used by locals who knew the area as “Burns Beach” after a farmer who ran sheep in the area (according to Wikipedia).
