Sunset Coast Self Drive Perth

Sunset Coast Self Drive, Perth

October 2016

Having nothing on our itinerary today, aka ‘Free & Easy’ we decided to drive along Perth’s coastal roads from City Beach right up to Boston Quay a distance of about 46 km from our hotel. As one can only expect sunset on the coastal side of Perth, thus this post is titled ‘Sunset Coast Self Drive’ whilst the drive was actually in the morning. So no sunset pictures.

Our first stop is at City Beach for the view of the beach and then onto the West Coast Highway pass Scarborough to Hillarys Boat Harbour with a stop at Sorrento Quay boardwalk, a small mall. At the harbour, plenty of private yacht and pleasure boats are docked and within a short walking distance, is Hillarys Harbour Resort. You can also catch a ferry to Rottnest Island here.

First stop, City Beach. Blue sky, sunny day but the wind was strong and chilly.

The wind was so strong that the leaves are blurred.

No space to dock in the waters, bring it overland.

We then proceeded to drive to Boston Quays which in our opinion is an up-scale residential area. Like Sorentto Quay, yacht and boats are docked here. What makes this area more exclusive are houses are built right to the edge of the waters where one can dock their boat right in-front (back?) of their residence. The area is still under development as near completed houses are still under construction.

Dock your vessel right up to your residence.

Leaving Boston Quays in the late afternoon, we decided to head for Lakeside Joondalup for lunch. Lakeside Joondalup is a big mall and we spent a while window shopping. For Muslim visitors, there are two halal outlets at the food court (ground floor) for your convenience.
