Revision – Sorrento Beach

Sorrento Beach offers excellent family swimming and turquoise water laps against pure white sand, making it an idyllic spot for a relaxing afternoon of beach fun.

Sorrento Beach is located directly south of the bustling Hillarys Boat Harbour, which is home to plenty of restaurants and cafes, as well as the Aquarium of Western Australia.

The Sorrento Surf Life Saving Club provides peace of mind with lifeguard patrols on weekends and public holidays, while midweek lifeguard patrols are provided by the City in conjunction with Surf Life Saving WA.

Removal of Beach Enclosure

The City of Joondalup in conjunction with the State Government installed a beach enclosure at Sorrento Beach in late 2016, however at its November 2020 meeting, Joondalup Council unanimously resolved to remove the Sorrento Beach enclosure due to the compromised integrity of the structure. Removal of the beach enclosure has been completed.

The City will investigate options for the provision of a replacement enclosure. This will enable the City to adequately investigate and plan appropriately to implement a new enclosure, aided by the lessons learnt from the Sorrento Beach enclosure.

Shepherds Bush Reserve

Shepherds Bush Reserve is classified as a major conservation area and is ranked in the City of Joondalup’s top five bushland areas due to its high biodiversity values. The reserve covers approximately 17 hectares of bushland and is a great place for a nature walk.

Burns Beach

A family favourite, Burns Beach is a sheltered swimming spot that sits within the wildlife-rich waters of Marmion Marine Park. Walk the coastal path, relax on the white-sand beach, barbecue in the grassed parks, or just sit atop the limestone cliffs and drink in a spectacular Indian Ocean sunset.

Look out for seabirds, dolphins, sea lions, rays and a huge diversity of other species from the lookout points. Interpretive signs along the way provide insights into the native flora, fauna and history of the area.

Dine ocean-side at the café, or try chasing some fish by throwing in a line from the groyne or northern end of the beach.

Iluka Beach Park

The City boasts 17km of stunning coastline, stretching north from Beach Road in Marmion, through to Burns Beach Road in Burns Beach. The beaches within the City have many facilities, which makes visiting them a pleasurable experience for residents and tourists of all ages.

Hillarys Boat Harbour

Hillarys Boat Harbour is one of Western Australia’s top award- winning tourist attractions offering a wide appeal of day time and night life entertainment. It is home to AQWA – the Aquarium of WA, boasting the largest aquarium and underwater glass tunnel in Australia.

Hillarys is the perfect place for kids with beautifully groomed public parklands and a sheltered beach easily accessible by pram or wheelchair. Visitors can enjoy leisure and adventure activities such as boat cruises, seasonal whale watching, jet skiing, deep-sea fishing, diving, jet boarding and helicopter flights.

Hillarys is also the perfect place to relax with a great variety of bespoke art and souvenir shops, cocktail bars, fine-dining and family-friendly restaurants.

Sorrento Beach

Sorrento Beach offers excellent family swimming and turquoise water laps against pure white sand, making it an idyllic spot for a relaxing afternoon of beach fun. The City of Joondalup in conjunction with the State Government installed a beach enclosure at Sorrento Beach in late 2016.

Please Note: Due to the current condition of the beach enclosure and recent storm events the City is unable to guarantee that the enclosure will restrict the entry of marine life, possibly including sharks, into the swimming area. The City advises that, as with all other beaches, you swim at your own risk.

At its November 2020 meeting, Joondalup Council unanimously resolved to remove the Sorrento Beach enclosure due to the compromised integrity of the structure.

Removal of the existing structure is likely to commence on Monday 23 November 2020. Some sections of the beach will not be available for use by the public during this time.

The City will investigate options for the provision of a replacement enclosure. This will enable the City to adequately investigate and plan appropriately to implement a new enclosure, aided by the lessons learnt from the Sorrento Beach enclosure.

Sorrento Beach is located directly south of the bustling Hillarys Boat Harbour which is home to plenty of restaurants and cafes, as well as the Aquarium of Western Australia.
