Plenty of public barbecues cater for the great Aussie tradition of an outdoor barbecue when the best place to be is close to the ocean.
South Beach is perfect for families and inexperience swimmers - the water is a little calmer than Leighton or Port Beach. A full-size outdoor basketball court, playground area for the kids, cafes and stand-up paddle boarding provide everything you need.
Cafes, restaurants and the historic South Beach Hotel are a 2 minute walk across Wilson Park .
South Beach is a 5 minute drive from Fremantle - there's plenty of parking with overflow parking available at Wilson Park on hot days. Hire a bike to ride south along the train line or the blue Fremantle CAT service stops right at South Beach.
