Alfred Cove is a southern suburb of Perth, Western Australia. Its local government area is the City of Melville.

History[edit]

It is named after the adjacent sheltered cove in the Swan River, which is in turn named after Alfred Waylen (1833-1901), a pioneer settler in the area who was granted Swan Location 74, covering most of present-day Alfred Cove and Myaree.[2]

It contains Tompkins Park, and has a population of 2,048.[1]
