    Trigg is a suburb of Perth, Western Australia. Its local government area is the City of Stirling. Trigg Island is a small island off the coast of the suburb of Trigg.

    Overview

    Trigg Beach is one of Perth's most popular beaches for board riding, catering mainly to surfers and body boarders alike, with a small majority of swimmers. In summer, shifting sand fills the channel between the Blue Hole and Trigg Point take off point for a long continuous wave ride to Trigg Beach.

    Trigg also has a snorkeling beach, Mettams Pool, which is to the north of the main surf/swim area.

    Trigg nature reserve is situated opposite Trigg Beach. It is also known to be a common meeting point and lookout for the local surfing community.

    With playground protection from the sun and sea breeze, Clarko beach side reserve near Trigg Island is one of the most popular parks in the City of Stirling. Clarko Reserve was created when beach shacks were demolished and shack owners were compensated with sub-divided blocks of residential land further east in the new Trigg suburb of Perth Western Australia.

    History

    The suburb and island was named after Henry Trigg, Superintendent of Public Works for the Swan River Colony in 1842.[2][3]
