DESCRIPTION

 

Seabird was a small fishing town north of Perth but it is now becoming more of a place to retire.

The coast in front of the town has been subject to erosion as sea levels change. In 2015 local residents took their concerns to the State Government to see what could be done to reduce the damage done by winter storms.

Turner Street, that used to run along the foreshore, has now been completely swallowed by the ocean and beach-front houses are now under threat of suffering the same fate.

The State Government committed $2,000,000 for the construction of a sea wall to try and save houses that are under threat. This will only be a short-term solution and will also mean that much of the beach will be permanently under water.

HISTORY

 

Originally settled by squatters, the first name proposed for the town was Chalon. The local community preferred the name Seabird which recalled a maritime accident in 1874 when the schooner Seabird had her side split open.

The townsite was gazetted in 1968.
