One of Rockinghams most famous must see destinations is Penguin Island. A short ferry trip from Shaolwater, and just a few minutes from Rockingham Holiday Village.

Check out the white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, and get up close with the worlds smallest penguins. Feeding times are at 10.30am 12.30pm and 2.30pm daily.

Getting to Penguin Island is pretty easy, with ferries departing every hour from 9am to 3pm.

Rockingham Beach Foreshore Revitalisation


Stage one comprised three main areas – Railway Terrace, now a pedestrian-friendly shopping and eat street; the Beach Plaza, which will become a new civic heart for Rockingham with a range of recreational, cultural and heritage attractions; and the Boardwalk, with timber terraces and some ‘young-at-heart’ attractions connecting to the beach.
