Suburb Profiles.


Bicton.


The sand spit of Point Walter was one of the first sites of physical contact between the new settlers and local Nyoongar people.

The present suburb of Bicton comprised four grants taken up in 1830 by Alfred Waylen, Joseph Cooper, William Habgood and John Hale Duffield. These predominantly farming enterprises, serviced the growing needs of the fledgling Fremantle community. Its original bush racecourse is still clearly evident in its street design of Yeovil and Birdwood Crescents.

Bicton has been widely acknowledged for its scenic natural beauty borne by its river unique features (sandy river beaches, sandstone cliffs, native bush and iconic sand spit) while offering immediate access to one of the most treasured enclaves along the Swan.
