    There is now a new jetty which has been built on the beach and a popular fishing spot. Some fish caught in the area are tailor, bream, garfish, herring, flathead, pink snapper and if you can handle it, some monster rays. Bait can be bought from the Coogee Beach Deli on Powell Street.

    Kwinana Quit Motorplex

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Quit Motorplex is not far from the Kwinana Freeway and was opened in 2000 to accommodate speedway and drag racing. Today it is reported to be the best dirt speedway in the world.

    The Kwinana Motorplex is located less than 30 minutes from Perth City.

    Travelling down the Kwinana Freeway from Perth, take the Anketell Rd exit. The Quit Motorplex entrance is only 100 metres from the corner of Rockingham Rd and Anketell Rd.

    Aquarama Marine Complex

    by keeweechic Written Jan 1, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is quite a unique complex in the respect of how they store boats. They have a 3 storey boat stacker. Vessels are lifted up from the water by a special forklift which can life some 3.5 tonnes, and store in these tiered little boat houses. You only have to give an hours notice when you want to get it down and go for a cruise. The complex also has fuel and offers general boat maintenance.

    East Fremantle YC Moorings

    by keeweechic Written Dec 16, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fremantle definitely has a big sailing attraction. Aside from the Fremantle yacht club, there is also the East Fremantle Yacht Club. This facility is also for the non-boating patrons who just enjoy the bar and dining experience. They will also cater for private functions and weddings. Included in the club is a modern gym and sauna. If you are boating though, you can hire boat storage, pens and moorings. There is a slipway and a boat launching ramp and petrol and diesel are available 24 hrs.

    Kite Surfing is relatively new sport which uses a very large stunt kite to provide the wind power to waterski or surf. The afternoon Fremantle Doctor provides good breezes along the Cockburn Sound.
