Quinns Rocks

 

The major attraction of Quinns is Quinns Beach, which spans the entire western boundary of the suburb along Ocean Drive, one of the area’s main backbone roads. The beach contains barbecue facilities and children’s play areas for families, as well as a dedicated “dog beach” further north, for dog-walkers. A beachside cafe and bottle shop are situated on Ocean Drive. The beach is also home to the Clubrooms of the Quinns Mindarie Surf Lifesaving Club, who have patrolled the beach since the club’s foundation in 1982.

There are over ten large parks and reserves scattered throughout Quinns Rocks. Many of these parks share an abundance of sporting facilities for residents, such as the Quinns Rocks Bowling Club, the McCoy Park BMX Tracks, the Quinns Rocks Skate Park and the Gumblossom Tennis Courts. The tennis courts are located at Gumblossom Park, the site of the Gumblossom Community Centre, which provides for most community functions and gatherings in the suburb.

Quinns Rocks is largely residential, relying on Clarkson and the nearby city of Joondalup for major commercial and public services. Nonetheless, it does have the Quinns Village Shopping Centre, a small shopping precinct in the south-east. Located here is an IGA branch, serving as the suburb’s main shopping centre for groceries, as well as a post office, a newsagent, a bottle shop and a service station.
