BRANDING PERTH'S SUNSET COAST
The Sunset Coast is the much better new brand of what was formerly known as "Perth's northern suburbs". Northern! Yuk! THE "Gold Cost" is a good example of tourism marketing / brand marketing. With well planned development and marketing the Sunset Coast will be more attractive.
Spectacular sunsets are seen over the Indian Ocean every month of the year. The sunset photos on this page were taken by Ben with a digital video camera in midwinter. Some of the finest sunny, calm weather on Perth's Sunset Coast can be experienced in our southern hemisphere winter.
This is when flights and accommodation along the Sunset Coast are at their lowest and beaches are least used except by surfers.
TRAVEL PERTH TO SUNSET COAST
Easy access to the Sunset Coast of Perth is via the West Coast Highway. It's a scenic stress-free drive, with plenty of cafes, surf beaches, shaded lawns like those at Cottesloe Beach and small sheltered beaches such as Metham's Pool of the northern Sunset Coast.
SUNSET COAST FACILITIES/SERVICES/TOURIST ATTRACTIONS
Most beaches along the Sunset Coast are patrolled by red and yellow uniformed, volunteer lifesavers from surf clubs on the Sunset coast all through summer. Cities and councils of the Sunset coast pay for blue uniform wearing lifeguards to patrol beaches of the coast all year round. They drive 4WDs on the beach. Good cafes and restaurant are on the Sunset Coast.
Good views of the Sunset Coast are from the top of:
Free public barbeques and child play structures are located at most Sunset Coast beaches. There are no private beaches in Perth. All beaches are open to the public all year round. Free of charge. Local governments along the Sunset Coast do a good job of maintaining and cleaning beaches and facilities.
The Scarborough Beach Pool
Aerial shark spotting plans and helicopters patrol up and down the Sunset Coast in summer. Drones are also used to scout for sharks. Check the government's SharkSmart website in great white season months of August, September, October, November.
SUNSET COAST ENVIRONMENT/CLIMATE
The coast has a Mediterranean climate. The first part of summer has a
daily strong sea breeze starting about 10am so get to the beach in the
morning before the sea breeze. Late summer is hotter and more humid with
less cooking from the sea breeze known as the Fremantle Doctor.
Calm balmy Autumn is my favourite month. Most of the time the Indian
Ocean is crystal clear. Just under the water, a few metres from beaches
north of Trigg Island, the world is alive in contrast to the brown
landscape after summer. Marine life abounds in the Marmion
marine park. Snorkelling when turbidity is low, on calm ocean days with
light offshore winds is a must do experience on the Sunset Coast.
Environmental volunteers like the Stirling Natural Environment Coastcare group work tirelessly to weed and grow native plants on beach dunes of the Sunset Coast.

Some of the best attraction of the Sunset Coast are the beautiful Perth people that love this coastline. Visiting US sailors think so. I guess about a quarter of beach goers are foreign. Many times I've been asked to snap pictures of happy, inspired visitors. Their genuine happiness at being on a pristine, pollution free SunSet Coast beach is infectious. A nice sunset brings visitors and locals out onto the street or on the beach in awe of the evolving spectacular multicolour display. Hope you can join us to see our spectacular sunsets over the Indian Ocean.
Scarborough is a hub of the Sunset Coast without a safe pedestrian crossing at the busy intersection of West Coast Highway and Scarborough Beach Road.

FULL DAY TRIP OF THE SUNSET COAST
I attended a tourism forum today which identified the many great tourist attractions of the Sunset coast. Even if you start your day trip tour of the Sunset Coast you wont see it all in one day. Our table suggested starting at Yanchep exploring the caves and swimming in the Yanchep lagoon. Then swim at Mullaloo Beach. Explore Hillarys Boat Harbour restaurants, shops, entertainment, marina, clubs etc. Stop at Mettam's Pool and or Trigg Beach for a swim/surf. Lunch at Scarborough or Cottesloe beach. Back to Scarborough to watch an Indian Ocean Sunset from Sunset Hill. Then party at the night clubs at Scarborough Beach after a restaurant meal there.
