Florida Beach History


Florida Beach Estate is nestled on the Indian Ocean side of Old Coast Road, in the Mandurah suburb of Dawesville, south of the Dawesville Channel.

Located in the area is an international class golf course and tourist precinct, the popular surf beach Pyramids, which is home to the Port Bouvard Surf Life Saving Club and the Port Bouvard Sports & Recreation Club that hosts a variety of activities including bowls, tennis and yachting. There is also private and public primary schools, a childcare centre and the Dawesville Playgroup.

Just north of Florida Beach is Caddadup Reserve, which was originally created in 1895 as a “resting place for travellers and stock". Caddadup is an Aboriginal name and was suggested as a formal name for the reserve by the Mandurah Tourist Bureau. The purpose of the reserve was changed to ‘recreation and camping’ when it was vested in the Shire of Mandurah in 1958.

Dawesville was named in recognition of the Dawe family who originally settled the area in 1913 and constructed their home ”Allandale” (now State Heritage listed) by 1918. The family conducted a fish cannery on the site abutting the waterline of the Harvey Estuary. The original 64ha land parcel was subdivided in 1974 with all land sold except for the 1.4 hectares of the homestead block.

H&N Perry became involved with the Dawe family in 1955 when the late Harry Perry entered into a joint venture with Len Dawe to develop the northern part of what is today known as Dawesville. Len and Muriel Dawe’s land extended from the Harvey Estuary to the Indian Ocean immediately south of Caddadup Reserve. The estates were known as “Florida Estuary” and “Florida Ocean”. During the 1950’s and 1960’s the individual lots were
sold on Vendor’s terms of £5 deposit with the balance being paid over seven years with monthly repayments calculated at 6% interest per annum adjusted quarterly.
