Things to do in Western Australia: Rockingham

We started our Australian journey in Rockingham which is located a 40min drive from Perth but if you don’t have a car you can also get the train from the city.


Here are some things to do in Rockingham for the day:

  1. Chill out at the Rockingham Foreshore.
  2. Go Jet skiing with Jet ski Tours Perth 
  3. Visit Lulu’s for some breakfast.
  4. Hike around Point Peron.
  5. Boat trip over to Penguin Island.


Tip: Rockingham foreshore and Point Peron are perfect spots to watch the sunset.

1. Rockingham Foreshore.

The beaches at Rockingham have the calmest waters I have ever seen. It makes it perfect for paddle boarding or kayaking. There is also a massive sandbank so the waters were always quite shallow which makes it perfect if you’re not a very confident swimming.

2. Go Jet Skiing.

You can hire a jet ski with Jet Ski Tours Perth. We did this and were lucky enough to have dolphins swimming beside us.

3. Breakfast at Lulu’s.

Breakfast at Lulu’s is definitely one that can’t be missed. This was our favourite cafe when we were in Rockingham.

4. Hike around Point Peron.

Take a short hike around Point Peron. If you have been to Dublin this will remind you of a smaller version of Howth Cliff Walk.

5. Boat trip over to Penquin Island.

Take a boat trip to Penguin Island. This is a short trip across the waters to Penguin Island, We didn’t get to see any penguins while we were there but it was nice to walk around the island and chill on the beach. Make sure to bring a packed lunch as theres nothing over there.
