Rockingham Beach

I had to deliver some paperwork to our new rental agent yesterday(yes the owners of our home have chosen new agents) so I took a few photos of the beach area. Garden Island and the Stirling Naval Base are across Cockburn Sound from Rockingham and we can see Fremantle in the distance to the north.
It's a lovely safe beach with shallow water and none of the big waves we get at Safety Bay and Warnbro so it's very popular with families. There are many picnic tables and free BBQs in the grassy areas adjacent to the beach and quite a few very popular restaurants and cafes with fabulous views...remember it's still Spring here so not people are swimming yet...

I spent many days on this beach as a schoolgirl, jumping off the old jetty and swimming to shore. It's very popular with families with young children and there is a great walkway along the front which is well-used by walkers and joggers.

Joe is having his stitches taken out today and then he's going to play chess with a teacher friend near Perth. The forecast is for 32C so remember to "slip, slop, slap" every-one!

Love from Sue


  1. Rockingham looks lovely!
    Absolutely freezing here today. Was 10C for most of it. Have actually popped the heater on today as it was just way too cold. Hopefully we'll get some of your nice warm weather soon.
    Hope Joes app goes well

  2. I can see why it's such a popular beach, how blue is that water!

  3. What an amazing beach! I am land locked here but my heart is on a beach somewhere lol Thank you so much for showing us this gorgeous place. I can see why it is popular among families. it is so nice :)

  4. Hi there,
    My sister lives in Shoawater, just next to rockingham. I love to visit her when I can (I'm on the Eastern side of the country) and I always take time to visit the beach.
