Rockingham – Tourism Essentials

Episode: 2
Broadcast: 22nd March
Presenter: Chrissy Morrissy

One of our favourite quick getaways can be found in the blue waters off Rockingham, just 45 minutes drive south of Perth.

  • Penguin and Seal Islands lie a short 800 metres off the shore in the sheltered Shoalwater Marine Park and they are a mecca for some very unique West Aussie Wildlife.
  • Just 40km South of Perth you will find Rockingham – ‘Where the Coast comes to Life’.
  • 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 the water.
  • Rockingham’s extensive foreshore area features some of the best facilities available. Impressive, big, bright new playgrounds and BBQ facilities, beachfront restaurants & cafes.
  • If it’s shopping you enjoy, Rockingham has a range of shopping centres spread throughout the region. Our largest centre has over 200 specialty stores, four major retail outlets, a cinema complex, restaurants and a foodhall.
  • Be sure to 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.
