Gone are the days of long term hotel accommodation situated far from the centre of the action. With Dowler Apartments Subiaco, you’re never more than a short drive away from the best beaches, entertainment and shopping that Subiaco has to offer. Arguably one of Perth’s most famous beaches, Scarborough Beach is a short 15 minute drive from your accommodation.

Aside from the stunning blue water and white sand, you’ll find a huge range of shops, cafes, restaurants and boutiques perfect for exploring. The redevelopment which includes a swimming pool, skate park and playgrounds is terrific.


Situated in the middle of Perth’s northern suburbs, City beach is only a 10 minute drive from your long or short term accommodation in Subiaco. Take a stroll along the coastline or, if you’re up for an adventure, grab a board and get amongst the waves like the locals do.

Pop past in the afternoon, set up a picnic and stay as day turns to night to enjoy a stunning WA sunset. There are some great new restaurants at City Beach too.


Combining the personality of Scarborough Beach with a modern hipster vibe, Port Beach and the nearby Leighton Beach are two hot upcoming spots that are only a 15 minute drive from Dowler Apartments Subiaco. Consisting of a picturesque strip of white sand leading all the way up to South Cottesloe, these beaches are perfect for afternoon strolls or dips in the ocean thanks to relatively calmer waters.


If it’s incredible surf you want, drive 15 minutes from Dowler Apartments Subiaco and make your way to Trigg Beach. Known for being a bit too wild for even strong ocean swimmers, Trigg Beach is considered the undisputed king of Perth’s surf. If you’re an experienced surfer, grab a board and hit the waves. If you prefer to sit back and relax, watch the pros make the most of the thrilling waves with gravity-defying moves.


Rivalling Scarborough Beach for Perth’s ‘most popular’ beach, Cottesloe Beach, also known by locals as Cott, is just a 10 minute drive out of Subiaco. Boasting a quintessential laid back Aussie beach vibe, you’ll find beautiful water and sand paired with classic pubs and a selection of quality Australian restaurants nearby.
