Getting there

The Sunset Veranda is a pop-up venue which will be built on Brighton Reserve, 204 The Esplanade, Scarborough WA 6019

You can find us south of the new Scarborough Beach Pool, next to C-Breeze Kiosk.

Why not take advantage of our glorious location and walk, cycle or use public transport to get here! There will be VIP Bike Parking right at the entry to the Sunset Veranda.

The Sunset Veranda is conveniently located near the Scarborough Beach Busport, with buses running from both Glendalough and Stirling train stations. The 990, 410, 421 and 422 bus routes all service Scarborough Beach.

Visit for more information on bus routes, walking and cycling paths in the area.

Ride sharing services are a convenient and affordable way to get to and from the venue safely. The ideal drop off point for ride sharing services is at the cul-de-sac at the southern end of The Esplanade or (for ramp access from the road) at 199 The Esplanade.


Scarborough attracts families from far and wide, so parking is limited. If you absolutely must drive, it is recommended that you allow yourself extra time to find parking.

In addition to the general parking areas along the Esplanade, we recommend parking in the following locations:

  • Wilson Parking Multi Level car park on Manning Street . 2 hours free or $5 for all day parking (approximately 800m north of the venue).
  • Paid parking underneath the Rendezvous Hotel, access via West Coast Hwy and The Esplanade (approximately 500m north of the venue).
  • 110 Free parking bays in the Reserve Street carpark off West Coast Highway (approximately 1km north of the venue).

Please be respectful of our neighbours by not parking on their verges or blocking their driveways. Parking patrols are regularly undertaken in the area and fines for illegal parking will apply. This includes parking in no-stopping zones, on residential verges, driveways, tow away zones etc.

Ticket refunds will not be offered to patrons who are late because they couldn’t find parking, so please plan ahead, and use alternate methods of transport where possible.

The Sunset Veranda is a grassed venue accessible by wheelchair.

The closest ACROD bays are in the lower Esplanade carpark, with the entry off Brighton Road. It is recommended that patrons parking in these bays use the footpath around C-Breeze Kiosk towards the entry to the Sunset Veranda. This is the most direct path to our venue entrance and has the least incline.

Our Big Top performance space has seating allocated for people with accessibility needs and their companions. We recommend you get in touch with the venue prior to attending to advise us of any accessibility needs you may have so that we can greet you at the venue and grant you priority access to the show.

Some shows in our program feature Auslan translation or Audio Description services and many of our shows are considered relaxed performances, welcoming to neurodiverse audiences. Please check individual shows in our program for more information

The Sunset Veranda is presented by the City of Stirling and is held on Wadjuk country. The City of Stirling pays our respects to the Wadjuk People of the Noongar Nation, both past, present and emerging as the traditional owners of the land on which the Sunset Veranda is built.
