The Shire of Gingin is working on a new design for the Cunliffe Street beachfront as part of its commitment to a healthy local tourism industry.

The north end of town has the splendid Harold Park (below)and the new lookout

but the south end beachfront hasn’t fared so well. However, last year the Federal Government pledged a quarter of a million dollars for an enhancement to the beachfront at that end of town.

At present, there is a rarely used, unattractive and very large car park that overlooks the beach. It’s envisaged that some of this wasted space will be grassed, with perhaps a few simple shade structures as below. Another covered viewing deck could be placed halfway to the beach in the dune area.

If there’s one thing both locals and visitors are crying out for, and it’s a simple thing, is a pleasant space to take in the view over the bay.
The shire has confirmed new plans will be with Christian Porter’s office (his office arranged the federal government grant) in November which, if agreed on, could result in the upgrade being completed sometime next year.
It will be a welcome upgrade for the town.
