Point Peron

Natural Attractions

This long stretch of land at the southern end of Cockburn Sound – Point Peron is a popular place for a family or social group getaway.

For generations of Western Australian school children, Point Peron holds special memories as the location for school camps.

Point Peron is surrounded by the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park. The beaches are ideal for safe swimming, snorkeling and exploring small bays and rocky outcrops. There are boat launching facilities available – spend a day cruising the waters here and you’re likely to spot friendly dolphins. In the late afternoon enjoy the sunset over the ocean.

Point Peron sits near the causeway to the naval support facility on Garden Island.

Another interesting landmark is a World War II gun lookout.

Point Person is about an hour’s drive south of Perth.
