Rockingham Beach provides sheltered swimming and aquatic recreation places most of the year, and offers breathtaking coastal scenery, marine animal encounters and adventure experiences.
Located just 45 minutes south of Perth, the seaside city of Rockingham is the perfect destination to get up close with local marine life – sea lions, dolphins and their unofficial mascots, the little penguins.
Visit the recently revitalised Rockingham foreshore where you can walk straight up from Perth’s only north-facing, protected swimming beach to a vibrant mix of cafes, restaurants and shopping. Known as the place to have takeaway fish and chips on the beach at sunset, you’ll find the aroma of roasting coffee and sizzling seafood is paired memorably with ocean views.
The 37 kilometres of spectacular coastline offers an abundance of aquatic activities: swim, kayak, fish, cruise, surf, jet ski, snorkel, paddle board, kite surf or scuba dive in pristine waters. Or for a different vantage point, you can skydive over the ocean landing on the pristine, white sand on Rockingham Beach.
Rockingham is accessible by a short 40-minute car or train trip from Perth.
