Scarborough is a beach suburb of Perth (wouldn't actually swim there anymore, too many shark attacks in Aus lately). Perth beaches are mostly pretty nice. It used to be one of the rougher beach suburbs in the old days, but is now a sought after place to live.

I spent 3 weeks in Cottisloe a few years back, lovely place - we went into perth but mainly freemantle and rottnest island, I'd love to go back there, maybe even move there for a few years one day.

Cottelsoe is lovely - spent a lot of time at North Cott as a teenager. We took the kids down a few times when we were home (but only ankle deep - have you worked out I've got shark paranoia in my old age - there was another attack yesterday in Northern NSW).
