Cottesloe Beach Perth Western Australia Australia
The western Perth suburb of Cottesloe Beach is one of the few beaches in Western Australia with ocean side cafes and pubs. The distinctive avenues of Norfolk Island pines, the colonial style splendour of the Indiana Tea House and the Spanish-style Cottesloe Civic Centre with its magnificent gardens all add to the culture of 'Cottes'. Generations of Western Australians have spent summer days and evenings diving into the Indian Ocean from the distinctive floating bell in the ocean at Cottesloe Beach. Fishermen line the Cottesloe Groyne and surfies and board riders line the Indian Ocean either side of the Cottesloe Groyne. The wide grassy Cottesloe Esplanade offers shady spots for family picnics and concerts are held there. Could there be a more perfect venue for a Beach Boys concert than Cottesloe Beach? Cottesloe Beach was the venue of choice for many West Australians to celebrate the new millennium. Families and friend picnicked as the sun set over the Indian Ocean for the last time in the 20th century; boats sailed along the beach and the Western Australian Symphony Orchestra serenaded the new millennium from the sands.
