Plan your trip to Rockingham - Perth's aquatic playground.
Travel 45 minutes south from Perth to the seaside city of Rockingham where you can visit the beautiful Shoalwater Islands Marine Park, famous for its marine life. You can swim with the wild dolphins here or join a cruise to Seal Island and Penguin Island to see the fascinating Australian sea lions and little penguins. Rockingham’s foreshore offers a beautiful setting for picnics or lunch at a waterfront café.
Rediscover Rockingham Tram
A little nostalgia, a dash of history and a heaped serving of spectacular scenery – it's time to Rediscover Rockingham on the new hop-on, hop-off tourist tram.
It's free to jump aboard the replica tram that meanders along a coastal route connecting Rockingham's star attractions. The 18 km circular route takes around an hour to complete, starting at the Rockingham Museum and travelling out to Mersey Point where you can board the ferry to visit the little penguins at Penguin Island.
Take advantage of free, untimed parking at Tram Stop 1 – Rockingham Museum (at the rear carpark on Kent Street) and use the tram as a courtesy shuttle to stunning beaches, historic attractions and aquatic wildlife encounters. Enjoy the informative local commentary and hop on and off at your leisure at our four tram stops. Operating Sundays only until 25 April 2021. All aboard! Click here to view the tram timetable.
