Just 40km South of Perth you will find Rockingham – 'Where the Coast comes to Life'
Make your first stop the Rockingham Visitor Centre, conveniently located with ample parking and friendly staff, the centre is full of information and local knowledge to help you explore the area.
From the shallow child-safe calm of Cockburn Sound, to the pristine waters of the West Coast Dive Park or the exhilarating surf beaches of Secret Harbour - there's a beach for everyone. Rockingham's extensive foreshore area features some of the best facilities available. Bright new playgrounds and BBQ facilities are dotted along the 22km shoreline.
From September to June, visitors can board the ferry to Penguin Island. With its magnificent rugged coastline and shallow protected bays it's a wonderful place to explore on land and in water.
Rockingham is also fortunate to have some of the most challenging and picturesque golf courses in the Perth metropolitan area. Otherwise known as 'the Golf Coast' the stretch of coast from Kwinana to Mandurah is home to five top quality golf courses.
Rockingham has a range of shopping centres throughout the region. The largest has over 200 specialty stores, four major retail outlets, a cinema complex, restaurants and a food hall.
One of WA's best wine regions is located only a short drive from the Rockingham City centre. The Baldivis Karnup Wine Trail has a total of four wineries all within a 4km radius of each other.
Spend some time surrounded by nature at the Rockingham Regional Environment Centre 'Naragebup'. This award winning Environment Centre is located opposite Australian Heritage listed Lake Richmond, the home of threatened ecological species called Thrombolites. It features hands-on, interactive learning displays on indigenous culture and wildlife.
This stunning coastal region offers much more than beautiful expanses of award winning beaches – there’s something special for everyone.
