Just a couple of kilometres south-east of the bustling port of Fremantle, the blue-collar suburb of Beaconsfield is perfectly positioned for locals and visitors to take advantage of all that this wonderful corner of Australia has to offer.
This beautiful old port city simply reeks of character in its general ambience, its extraordinary collection of historic buildings and its bustling waterfront.
Here the old and established mingles successfully with the brash and modern. The restaurants - representing many and various cuisines - the pubs and the bars are among the best in Australia and a call at the waterfront markets will convince you that the local seafood is out of this world.
From Beaconsfield, it’s just a five-minutes' drive west to some fine, safe beaches, and Rottnest Island - at 11km long and 5km wide, a jewel in the Indian Ocean - is only 20km off the coast.
Infidels should be warned that Beaconsfield is serious Australian Rules football territory.
