Burns Beach is a suburb of Perth, Western Australia, located 34km north of Perth's central business district at the northern fringe of the City of Joondalup. Burns Beach has managed to maintain much of its original character as a small coastal village even with its loss of isolation, and the beach is popular among hang gliding enthusiasts.HistoryThe land at Burns Beach was originally owned by the Midland Railway Company. In 1908, following a request from 50 local residents, the Wanneroo Road Board (which eventually became Wanneroo City Council) successfully applied for a 20ha reserve for camping and a health resort. By the 1920s, the area was well used by locals who knew the area as "Burns Beach" after a farmer who ran sheep in the area.For many years it was accessible only by track or boat and functioned as a small coastal village, and tourism and fishing were the main occupations. After the Second World War, it was connected by road to Wanneroo Road.The sprawl of housing development extending northwards from Perth reached Burns Beach in the early-to-mid 1990s with the growth of Joondalup as a regional centre and the construction of the suburbs of Currambine and Kinross.Burns Beach is in Joondalup.
