Ocean Reef

Ocean Reef is a northern beach-side Perth suburb, located north of Hillarys, featuring pristine beaches and fine houses. The name is descriptive of the off-shore reefs. Development in the area commenced in the mid-1970's but was slow to start given its long distance from Perth. The push north has seen massive development in this coastal region Now Ocean Reef might be considered medium distance from Perth compared to its newer northern neighbours
