About Peel & Rockingham

Intricate waterways, soothing beaches and native forests are just some of the standout features of the Peel and Rockingham Region. Less than an hour's drive south of Perth, both offer a variety of activities. Enjoy a round of golf, plunge into the thrill of white-water rafting, or take a walk deep into jarrah forests. Ideal conditions for fishing and boating are also plentiful and there are local wineries and outdoor cafes to enjoy. Both Mandurah, (Peel’s capital), and Rockingham are great family destinations, with their wide grassy foreshores for picnicking and cafes for al fresco and waterfront dining. The region is also famous for interactive dolphin experiences. The safe, sandy beaches and sheltered waters of Cockburn and Warnbro Sounds are ideal for swimming, diving, sailing, boating, windsurfing and fishing. Or for something a little more relaxed, reminisce on a tour of discovery through the many timber towns dotted around the region, such as Serpentine, Jarrahdale & Dwellingup.
