Seabird

A small, attractive beach-side town, about 5 kilometres west off the Indian Ocean Drive and situated between Guilderton and Ledge Point and 100 kilometres north of Perth. Seabird was originally a place for squatters. The townsite was recognised by the Shire of Gingin in 1965 and gazetted in 1968. Then named Chalon, local pressure saw Seabird adopted, named after a ship of the same name which was holed and left stranded here in 1874

Seabird - Fish Factory

Fishing has always been a major industry up and down this coast. In particular rock-lobsters (crayfish). This looks like a seafood storage, processing and dispatching works. January 2011. Photos Ref: SEAB003

Seabird - Old Beach House

And some houses perhaps not so magnificent but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This house commands the same ocean view as its next-door neighbour, the house in the photo above. January 2011. Photos Ref: SEAB007
