Media release

A new road allowing direct access to the beach at Stockland’s Amberton Beach community in Eglinton will be open to the public from Saturday, 28 July, as part of the first stage of a $4 million foreshore development project.

The Viridian Boulevard extension will give Amberton Beach residents and visitors easy access to the beach, with a 67-bay car park and interim pedestrian beach access also opening to the public on Saturday.

The first stage of the foreshore project will also ultimately include a planned café and bar overlooking the beach, a beachside playground and stairway leading onto the beach.

Col Dutton, General Manager for Stockland WA, said construction of the road to the coast, beach car park and pedestrian access took six months to complete and was an important component of the overall project.

“This is an exciting milestone for Amberton Beach and has been eagerly awaited by local residents,” Mr Dutton said.

“We’re providing a convenient new destination for local families to enjoy a day out and explore the breathtaking stretch of coastline that fronts our Amberton Beach community.

“Work on the beachside playground and stairs is on track to be completed by November, just in time for summer.”

The playground area will include three outdoor showers, a barbecue and shelter, seating and a separate enclosed playground for toddlers.

Meanwhile, the café will be an iconic feature of the foreshore development and is expected to be completed by mid-2019.

Amberton Beach is hitting a chord with buyers looking for a healthy and active lifestyle in a prime oceanfront location with an affordable price tag.

The fast-growing community last month celebrated the opening of a new skate park, dog exercise area, cricket nets and community hub.

Kilometres of cycling and walking paths, outdoor spaces and parks feature throughout the community, with a multi-million dollar sports field, including an AFL sized oval and a park with scooter and bike track and adventure playground, providing plenty of exercise inspiration.

Stockland also sponsors the free Live Life Get Active program, which offers Amberton Beach locals and visitors from the surrounding area sessions in cross-training, boxing and yoga from Monday to Friday during school terms.

Meanwhile, Amberton Beach residents and their pooches also have access to free dog training sessions, which are a joint partnership with the RSPCA.

Amberton Beach will ultimately comprise more than 2,500 dwellings ranging from freestanding homes to townhomes and completed home packages. Land is currently priced from $167,000 and house and land packages start from $316,490.
