Starting from the car park at the end of Point Peron Road, Peron, this walk takes you on a circuit around the coastline of Cape Peron. Cape Peron, known locally as Point Peron, is a coastal beauty and the headland at Rockingham Lakes Regional Park, just a few minutes drive from the city centre of Rockingham. The area is known for its protected sandy beaches, rugged limestone cliffs, offshore reefs and panoramic sea views, and is home to many different family-friendly trails. Cape Peron is surrounded by the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park, which is home to bottlenose dolphins, Australian sea lions, loggerhead turtles and a variety of birdlife, including penguins. The calm and clear waters are ideal for swimming, snorkelling, fishing and kayaking, while the shoreline makes for some very scenic walks. Plenty of coves, beaches and viewpoints are present, along with WW2 ruins. Enjoy the coastal beauty of Cape Peron on a walk along its shores, or take the plunge to explore some of the underwater features of the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park. This is a relatively short walk, but the panoramic ocean views you'll get from almost every possible angle may prolong the time you'll spend. More if you decide to explore all the coves and lookouts. The walk can be considered easy and is mostly wheelchair-friendly. Dogs are allowed, as long as they're kept on a leash. Along the mainland foreshore of the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park, there are water stations, toilets, barbecues, picnic tables and several locations to purchase provisions. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
