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).
