Rockingham is aqua-packed! Discover a coastal retreat that will thrill, delight and excite everyone in the family in equal measure.
Drive 45 minutes south of Perth, and you’ll come across the pristine city of Rockingham. The coastal locale is a holidaymaker’s retreat with 37km of white sand beaches, crystalline waters and protected bays. Sailing a yacht, recreational fishing and island-hopping are all summertime pursuits Rockingham has become known for. However, those in the know venture out to this seaside escape in Western Australia for more adventurous experiences.
Watersports top the to-do list in Rockingham
For thrillseekers visiting the region, Perth Wake Park is the only cable wakeboard park in the state, and riders of any level can give it a go, while those looking for something a little more fun than fearless can work off some energy on the inflatable water course at Perth Aqua Park. If kitesurfing or wing foiling sounds like challenges you’d like to accept, check out Seabreeze Kite Surf School or WA Surf, which provides beginner to advanced surfing lessons in one of Australia’s best locations, the mirror-like Pond in Safety Bay.
Fancy yourself something of a hydroflight pilot? Jetpack Perth is WA’s only coastal water jet experience, and it’ll have your heart pumping harder than the jetpack on your back. Adrenaline junkies can get the ultimate birds-eye view of the glistening coast with Skydive Australia before landing on the beautiful Rockingham beach.
Animal encounters abound in Rockingham
Explore the world beneath the water with a scuba diving lesson, or get up close and personal with the furred, feathered and finned residents of Shoalwater Islands Marine Park. Join a sea kayak tour of Penguin and Seal Islands, swim with wild dolphins or take in the idyllic surroundings from a stand-up paddleboard.
Explore Rockingham with these offers
With three spring weekend packages including nature and wildlife, adventure and taste, there’s no better time to explore what Rockingham offers.
For the adventure lover, the ultimate package includes two nights at Quest Rockingham and an incredible skydive over the spectacular Rockingham coast. Don’t miss the chance to jump from a plane from 15,000ft and be amazed by the breathtaking views over the Indian Ocean before landing on the beach’s fine white sands.
Or take to the waters on a three-island snorkel tour that offers the chance to explore the colourful wildlife around the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park. For those who would prefer to go a little wild, you can tailor this package to include swimming with wild dolphins or snorkelling with sea lions. What are you waiting for?
