What is there to do Seabird?

To be honest there isn’t a lot to do at Seabird though that’s half the attraction.  

This quiet coastal town is the perfect escape for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of Perth, kick back and relax at the beach or the Seabird Tavern whilst taking in some of the best ocean views along WA’s coast.

Seabird Tavern

Seabird Tavern is a fantastic spot for those looking for a pub meal or a drink with a view.  Perched up high above the beach, there is a big selection of tables to choose from with amazing views down over the coastline.

Sitting at Seabird Tavern for such a pleasant experience and would highly recommend it to any fellow Perth dwellers looking for lunch with a view. Check out the photos below for an insight into what Seabird tavern looks like.

Final thoughts

To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect when heading up to Seabird though I was pleasantly surprised.  With very little traffic up that way, it was relatively quick to get there and had such a nice relaxing vibe.  

Definitely recommended it to others considering heading up there, the only thing I’d add is that you want to be going there when the weather is in your favour (offshore winds) as you’re definitely exposed to the elements without much shelter.
