Events at Scarborough

The MRA and City of Stirling are committed to activating Scarborough Beach precinct through Summer 2016. The area will be challenged through parking, transport and access however there is still plenty of options to visit, dine and be entertained.

Please note the annual Scarborough Carols will not be going ahead this year due to safety and parking concerns. We look forward to hosting the Carols in the newly revitalised area in the future.

Parking and public transport

With the removal of car parks for redevelopment, parking will be at a premium and Rangers will be on patrol issuing infringements for illegal parking. Please ensure you take responsibility, park appropriately (no verge parking) and read the parking signs before leaving your vehicle. Vehicles left overnight may be subject to towing if parked inappropriately.

Cycling and walking

There's a network of cycle and pedestrian pathways winding around Scarborough Beach - some are part of the popular and scenic Perth to Fremantle Bike Route.

Some pathways are currently diverted around the construction area, along The Esplanade and away from the coastline with beach access only from Manning Street and Brighton Road ends.

Download the map for cyclist and pedestrian access routes through the area.


Forward works have commenced to enable construction to begin. These include large amount of fencing, excavation, demolition of the former Scarboro Surf Life Saving Club and Maureen Grierson Community Centre and carparks.

Construction of a temporary compound at the northern end of the Scarborough beachfront is complete and is home to Scarboro Surf Lifesaving Club and City of Stirling Beach Services until 2018. Find out more here.
