“New Year at Rockingham Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

We went here with friends to celebrate New Year. Every year the council sponsera concert on the beach front with fireworks at midnight. It was excellent although this year a bit cold. Plenty of food and soft drinks available. Good police presence and lots of security. Great atmosphere, take your own seat and blankets.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

What a beautiful part of Australia! So family friendly, calm waters, shady trees, lots of benches to sit and watch the world go by. An absolute MUST for those visiting WA.

“Simply Irresistible for Holiday Makers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

My family visited the Rockingham Beach along the Rockingham Beach Road in Dec 2013.

Rockingham Beach is very similar to Cottesloe Beach in term of its scenery. But the picnic ground at the Rockingham’s Foreshore Reserve made it a more ideal place for family outings. On the day of my visit, Rockingham Beach was not very crowded but there were many picnickers enjoying the shade at the Foreshore Reserve. There are many cafés and eateries conveniently located along Rockingham Beach Road offering a wide range of food for your choice of meals and you can either have it indoor or have a picnic at the Beach.

Rockingham Beach is simply irresistible for holiday makers and it is definitely worth a visit when you are in Rockingham.
