Beach
“Once a main observation post for a WWII coastal battery, the lookout gives a commanding view of Cockburn Sound, the attractive coastline and the Shoalwater Island Marine Park. A relatively unknown fact is that the cape also contains a number of hidden gun sites from 1942. ”

Historic Site
“Built in 1830, the Round House stands as one of Freo's oldest buildings and icons. Although the building is a must see in it own right, its a great place to go for an ocean view, sunset or just a chill on the lawn. For a short time in 2018 there is a great view of an illusion artwork by french artist Felice Varini that extends a massive 800m across the facades of high street. The central view point is at the steps to the roundhouse. But the most spell binding bit about the trip up to the roundhouse is the little stroll down Captains Lane and back up Ms Trivett Place. This precinct will transport you back and give you an insight into life in this part of the world 190 years ago!”

Scenic Lookout
“We like to drop into Reabold Hill on our way to the beach sometimes, even after many years living in Perth as locals. The changing seasons bring new flowers or wildlife in this high point along the coast. Get your bearings as you look over the coastal plain, the city, the coast line and breath in the smell of the coastal plain natural world. There are various paths that cut through the bush and take you down to the City Beach main swimming spots. Don't worry, you can cafe and take a few breaths before walking back up the hill to your car.”
