Frisbee's fly, children squeal, waves crash, seagulls squawk, this is the soundtrack of summer. Hang out with friends on balmy nights, drink at pop-up bars, enjoy festival fun.
Dine alfresco at quays and marinas or live like a local and eat fish and chips on the beach. Get up close and personal with WA's unique marine life at AQWA, WA’s state aquarium, or wander inland to spot native frogs, kangaroos and birdlife as you follow the path of Aboriginal ancestry from Yellagonga and Lake Joondalup to Yanchep.
