Slade Point

slade-pointSlade Point was named by Capt. James Cook, after Sir Thomas Slade, the naval architect who designed Nelson's H.M.S. Victory.

The peninsula community looks out across Slade Bay. Much of the land to the south of the suburb is absorbed by the Slade Point Nature Reserve and large tracts to the west are wetlands that adjoin the rich fishing grounds of McCreadys Creek. These green buffer-zones and a lack of through traffic help to keep the area lovely and quiet.

The streets of Slade Point become elevated at Gannet St; providing a good many residents with coastal views. Those homes located at the top of Slade Point headland have the particular benefit of being able to watch the sun rise as well as set. The suburb then extends around the point and south to Lamberts Beach.
