A long stretch of land at the southern end of Cockburn Sound, Point Peron is a popular place for a family or social group getaway. For generations of Western Australian school children, Point Peron holds special memories as the location for school camps. Point Peron is surrounded by the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park.
Its beaches are ideal for safe swimming and exploring small bays and rocky outcrops. There are boat launching facilities available, and you can spend a day cruising the waters here where you’ll be likely to spot friendly dolphins. For keen divers and snorkellers, the shallow coastal waters and Point Peron offer great visibility and diverse sea life to admire.
In the late afternoon, it’s a prime spot to enjoy the sunset over the ocean. An hour’s drive from Perth, Point Peron sits near the causeway to the naval support facility on Garden Island. Another interesting landmark is a World War II gun lookout.
