City Beach

City Beach is, as the name implies, a beach-side suburb west of Perth City. The district name is descriptive of its location. An early name suggested was Ocean Beach but as the area was opened up by the City Council, the current name prevailed. This area was once part of the Lime Kilns Estate containing around 1,300 acres including Floreat. Development in the area started in 1928. Extensive bush reserves between here and Floreat have survived the years

Nothing like taking photos of the sea because the scene and light both can change in an instant. Looking north from the breakwater, a wave breaks and those two swimming boys are caught up in the tumbling surf. May 2012. Photos Ref: CITY007
