The new Rockingham Visitors Centre is just on the other side of the Village Green with all the up-to-date information on what to do in and around Rockingham. The fantastic team there can answer any questions they know all that there is to know about Rockingham.

We have put together our favourite things to see and do.

Natural Attractions

Rockingham is known as the aquatic playground, as the variety of water based activities is bountiful. Shoalwater Island Marine Park and  West Coast Dive Park in Warnbro Sound are well worth a look.


The Cruising Yacht Club OF WA hosts the annual Cockburn Sound Regatta. Our accommodation is affordable and is very close to this event.

Local War History

You can discover so much by reading the information plaques at Naval Memorial Park on the corner of Rockingham Beach Rd and Governer Rd. It is dedicated to the memory of HMAS Perth and all who lost so much. Also discover  the hidden gun sites from 1942 at the Shoalwater Island Marine Park.

Shopping in Rockingham

There are lots of shopping options. The boutique or street shopping is mainly along the beach front where there is a huge variety of restaurants and coffee shops.

Rockingham Shopping Centre is on the corner of Council Ave and Read Streets. This is where the major retail outlets are including Target, Coles, Kmart and Woolworth’s. If a movie is your thing on a hot or wet day then this is where you will find the 8 screen Ace Cinema Complex with the Cine Gold Lounge.

If you love markets and a bargain then the Rockingham Rotary Market is on across the road every Sunday morning at the Village Green carpark number 19 Kent Street. Afterwards please come and enjoy breakfast or coffee and cake at Cafe Clipper.
