Fremantle Stuff > Streets > Beach Street
The 'beach' was the river beach (which has become the South Wharf [Victoria Quay] of the Fremantle Port) and the track along the edge of it was made into a street. Modern Beach Street runs from the corner of Parry Street (the former Edward Street) to East Street, which is the boundary between Fremantle and East Fremantle. At the Fremantle end it is the continuation of Elder Place and before that Phillimore Street. At the East Fremantle end it continues as Riverside Road which eventually transmogrifies into Wauhop Road, after it has been all the way around Preston Point.
The first feature of the street is the Australia Hotel, on the corner of Parry Street (the former Edward Street). To the west is the Cold Stores housing complex, then the former Elders woolstore.
