About North Beach
The impressive suburb of North Beach, just 14 kilometres from North Beach city center, took its name from the "north beach coastal run". The original area was part of the Hamersley estate during the 1800s that was leased for grazing. The major features of North Beach's leisure spots are the spectacular sandy shores to the west and the bushland area of Star Swamp to the east. This coastal community belongs to Stirling City with residents originating from parts of Europe, New Zealand and South Africa.

North Beach's history dates back to its days as a settlement since 1837. The lovely scenery attracted many people prompting commercial development during the post-war years. Remarkable growth during the 50s and 60s enabled North Beach to become a full-fledged tourist destination.

Recreation in North Beach is concentrated in areas such as Star Swamp Bushland Reserve, Henderson Environmental Center and Watermans Beach. Sports facilities for cricket, tennis, rugby and athletics are found in Charles Riley Memorial Reserve. The main shopping center is on West Coast Plaza along North Beach Road. On the border between Trigg and North Beach, the popular Mettams Pool bustles with recreational activities like swimming and snorkelling.

Two schools, North Beach Primary School and Our Lady of Grace School, comprise the suburb's academic institutions. More schools are found in neighbouring Carine and Karrinyup.

North Beach is bounded by Marmion Avenue in the east, Beach Road in the north, Wiliamson Way, Charles Riley Road and Lynn Street in the south and the Indian Ocean in the west.
