Where to live in Perth?« on: July 26 2008 04:07:00 »
I've just got a job in Perth and am looking to live somewhere as close to a surf beach as possible. I will be working with time at sea and then time off, so will be able to travel but will have to spend some time at the office and so need to be able to commute (within reason- I don't mind up to an hour or so) to central Perth.
Some of the surf reports/info seems quite conflicting. I don't need to be somewhere epic but just like to get in the water as often as I can.
Where would be great to live?
Thanks for any tips,

I've heard it's supposed to be expensive to live around Perth. My son was going to go for a job over the way.
I had one other guy who worked in the mines indicate that all places aren't expensive.

Yeh, I think there's quite a lot of mining money around. My jobs pays ok though and they also provide somewhere for me to stay the first two weeks, so I just wanted to know where to be looking for somewhere.

I have to get into central Perth- St George's Terrace- within an hour. I just wanted to know if that's possible from a surf beach. I won't have a car at the beginning so will be using public transport.

Ok start your search from scarborough beach , perth is renown for small shitty waves as all the outer reefs & islands block the swell, but you will find if anything something to wet the appetite, it ain't cheap but you might find something a little inland from the beach..
