Where to park at the beach

Cockburn’s coastline is a popular tourist attraction for Perth residents and includes the unique Omeo shipwreck. Parking in the area is limited, like at most popular tourist attractions around the world. There is no easy solution, so you may have to walk to your desired location.  

Parking illegally blocks the vision of drivers, cyclists and walkers and can potentially cause an accident or death. For everyone’s safety and to avoid fines up to $500, please adhere to parking signage in the area. 

The City’s rangers actively patrol the coastline over summer. Drones, parking sensors, license plate recognition technology and CCTV live monitoring are also used to help keep our community safe. 

Cockburn Road

Certain sections of Cockburn Road have parking restrictions, drivers should be aware of these signposted areas and park accordingly. Also keep in mind that parking within 10 meters of an intersection is considered hazardous and penalties apply.

Why is there not more car parking?

Parking is restricted along the coastline. In Port Coogee, limited land is available, Coogee Beach is protected by state legislation, and there are restrictions around clearing established native vegetation prevalent along the coastline. 

How far is it to walk along the coast?

Parking close by and walking to your desired location is another option. 
  • Woodman Point to Coogee Beach - 0.14km
  • Coogee Beach to the Omeo shipwreck - 0.9km
  • Coogee Beach to Ngarkal Beach - 1.6km
  • C.Y O’Connor Beach to Ngarkal Beach - 1.8km
