Cottesloe : Indiana Cafe
This was where the late Hollywood actor Heath Ledger was given a wake - his friends and family chose his favourite beach to celebrate his life.
Cottesloe is a beach-side suburb of the city of Perth in Western Australia. It located roughly halfway between Perth central business district and the port of Fremantle. It is famous for its beaches, cafes and relaxed lifestyle.
Cottesloe is bounded by the Vlamingh Memorial to the south, Stirling Highway, Congdon and Servetus Streets to the east; North Street to the north and the Indian Ocean to the west. A large part of Cottesloe is residential, although a significant shopping area is located along Stirling Highway, and a 9-hole golf course at Jarrad Street.
At the ABS 2006 census, Cottesloe had a population of 7,066 people living in 3,310 dwellings, 69.7% of which are detached houses on separate lots. The ABS identified property and business services and health as the two main occupations.
