Point Peron is my go to place when I’ve got a car and I want a hilly sea cliff walk with a great view.

It’s not close to Perth and it takes a bit of time to get there, but there’s always plenty of parking and friendly locals who greet you on your walk around the point.

It’s still one of my favourite places to visit.

Cape Peron is one of the seven areas of Rockingham Lakes Regional Park and it is commonly known as Point Peron (perhaps to differentiate it from Cape Peron, the northern tip of the Francois Peron National Park). There are two car parks, one at the end of the Point Peron Rd and the other about 200 m before it (on the right). We have seen that the 2.4 kilometer Cape Peron Loop Trail can be started from either of the two car parks, but we preferred to walk straight to John Point and return back walking on the beach on the southern shore of the Cape. The path between the car park and the north end of the cape is in perfect condition and accessible to all. It offers the chance to see the beauty of the cliff shaped by the waves of the Indian Ocean, to observe wildlife and to walk in one site of the battery complex defending the Garden Island Naval Base during WWII. One of the two 155 mm guns is still in place while the base of the second has collapsed. Along the trails the signs rightly draw attention to two reptiles in the reserve, the dugite and the bobtail, but it can be clearly seen that the fauna is now a mix of animals native to Australia and introduced species. In the low vegetation you can see European rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) and, along with bush birds like the welcome swallow (Hirundo neoxena) and the singing honeyeater (Gavicalis virescens) there is the introduced laughing dove (Spilopelia senegalensis) and rock dove (Columba livia). Among the sea birds we saw Australian pelicans, Australian pied cormorants, silver gulls and terns. From the Lookout Bridge we had an excellent view of Bird and Penguin Islands. A very pleasant walk in a very interesting nature, with the boundless horizon of an ocean whose power has shaped it and defines its life rhythms.

We didn't spend a lot of time here but enough to see some scenic beauty and also some of the rugged formations on the coastline. One cosy bay had a family setting up a shelter on the beach while the kiddies enjoyed the water. Some great walking trails if feeling energetic. A small group of kayakers enjoying life near the Point.

Can’t really fault this place and little hike . It’s free , there’s different types of hikes from beach to rock and to pathways. Can get some cool photos . Watch out for small blue bottle jelly fish along the beach atm . Beautiful of a nice day .

I have not visited Point Peron for years but I am glad we headed there today for a morning walk.
Parking was easy and we soon followed one of the many well signposted walking trails along the coast.
This is a great place to relax, exercise and enjoy the beautiful coastal views.
It would be even better on a summer’s day.

It was a ripper day for winter and thought let’s do some exercise and wander around Point Peron . Our friend from Victoria hadn’t been there either and it has a few walking paths and views of the ocean and natural cliffs. Plenty of parking , few lookouts and take your bathers if it’s warm. There was a few blue bottles on the beach washed up . Needs some ablutions located near the car park thoe.

Nice location but not really respected by locals. Rubbish all-around, burnout tracks along the roads... leave your car unattended and good chance it will get broken into. Not much in the way of fish life. Shame as this has so much potential with discussions of developments occurring.Even if the place doesn't get development someone needs to look after it !!

Dropped a line in the sea with mates while drinking a box of Heineken and caught no fish but the scenery is great. Drunk too much, got sunburnt, fell on the rocks and stubbed my toe. Good day.

This place is good for snorkeling, land side of the reef only! There is plenty of fish life under the surface.

This area also has great walking areas, paved walking tracks as well.

We popped down for a picnic lunch and watch the waves crash over the reef’s.

Just lock up your personal gear when you are hear.
