Getting here

Roads, parking, pathways and beach access have temporarily changed at Scarborough while the beachfront is being refreshed. You can still visit and enjoy the beach, amphitheatre, parks and the local businesses as normal and we suggest you use Manning Street and Brighton Road as entry points to the area. 

Public transport

A bus terminus is located at the end of Scarborough Beach Road and is serviced by buses 410 , 421 , 422  and the high frequency 990.

Bus 990 connects with trains at Glendalough Station on the Joondalup Line. Head down the escalators at the station to find the 990 bus stop located on Scarborough Beach Road.

Once you reach the terminus in Scarborough you can get to the beach (5 minutes) and local business including bars, restaurants and cafes by heading left or right.

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.
