    Although we were disappointed not to see any penguins, we did see plenty of pelicans and other seabirds along with a few skinks. The island is a bird sanctuary and I was happy to pay the charge so it can be maintained. The walk around the island, especially the view points, was lovely.

    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.

    Our Penguin Island visit has been reviewed separately and the entire coastline and bay area appeals. Its renowned as one of the State's most important marine protection areas with various islands classified as nature reserves and great diversity of marine dependent flora and fauna.

    This was our first visit here for Breakfast as our usual spogt was closed for a funeral service. The selection here was far better and the prices were reasonable. The same view as the others in this spot we will definately be back. Not as flashy as their opponants but the food was far better

    We stopped by the area for lunch after spending the morning at Penguin Island. It wasn't too hard to find parking in the area which was nice. We walked around the area after our late lunch. The beachfront looked quite new with resting and playing areas between the sand and the footpath.
    The park area had lots of grassy patches to run around in as well as a couple of playgrounds. Plenty of BBQ facilities were scattered around the park too. The park is right beside Rockingham beach so it was easy to go in for a swim and then head back up for some shade.
    It was a nice place for a stroll.

    Local museums are always of interest to us and we were waiting patiently for the doors to open on the Tuesday afternoon. Entry by gold coin donation and the friendly ladies present gave us a summary of the museum, its contents, and the history of the historic building. It really is a brilliant local museum, quality exhibits reflecting the history of Rockingham and surrounds, the entire very well curated. Kudos to the Historical Society and its members.

    Lake Walyungup is a shallow saline lake that is part of the Rockingham Lakes Regional Park. The park is fenced with a high wire mesh and access is through a gate located on a small car park on Safety Bay Rd, just 150m before the entrance to the Warnbro Station car park. There is no a trail that goes around the lake, but a loop that proceeds along the west side of the lake and, at about halfway of the body of water, turns right in the thick vegetation of the low hills to return to the entrance always staying on the western side of the reserve. After a few steps from the gate you will be in the 5.8 kilometer loop and we started heading towards the lake. Being October there was a good quantity of water and the whole northern area of the lake looked like a swamp with shallow transparent water among the tufts of vegetation. The absence of visible life in those waters immediately makes the mind think that it is a salt lake. In fact, Lake Walyungup does not have a water outflow towards the sea and therefore the water leaves the lake for the sole effect of evaporation with accumulation of salt over time. The whole area west of the lake shore was a vast desert area completely devoid of vegetation and perfectly flat, certainly covered by water when its level rises even a few centimeters. A long dry strip cut the lake in two in an east-west direction. There were therefore in fact a north and south lake quite different from each other. The north lake was a low swamp with a lot of vegetation likely to dry up early, while the south lake looked more like a lake with greater depth and vegetation present only at the edges between the water border and the vast flat desert area that separated it from the bush. Although few in number, birds such as eastern great egret (Ardea alba), white faced heron (Egretta novaehollandiae), red-capped plover (Charadrius ruficapillus) and wood sandpiper (Tringa glareola) were present in the south Lake. Due to the presence of a lot of water we could not see the fossil thrombolites that we read to be present. At the beginning of the path that leads inside the bush towards the hills there are signs of possible presence of unexploded ammunition. Since these are ammunition, not mines, we think there is no danger, just avoid touching anything made by man you can find. If the path along the lake is definitely desert, the return takes place in an area that appears to be swampy (freshwater) and rich in vegetation including many paperbark trees. Bush birds are common and we have seen even short-billed black cockatoo (Zanda latirostris). The loop is easy, but it is better to bring a bottle of water because most of it is under the sun. An interesting visit in a natural context rich in diversity of landscapes and vegetation.

    A pleasant park on the waterfront with walkway along the beachfront.
    Just to compliment on vision of planners, a pity many other councils around Australia don't follow this example of use of public space in the City.
    Attended for fun run and picnic.

    I'm always fascinated by floating rock spheres whenever sighted. There is an 1500mm sphere in the Bunbury Council gardens and then this nice version on the Rockingham waterfront. It is seated in a sculpted saucer shaped base that corresponds with the dimensions of the sphere. Water is pumped from beneath and causes the sphere lift and rotate. Some kiddies were having great fun placing their hands on the sphere to change the direction of the rotation. Impressive for it's symmetrical precision and function
