The Rockingham Visitor Centre is a non for profit organisation that is managed by a committee. Rockingham features significantly in Western Australia’s settlement heritage. The first Europeans to visit the area are believed to have been led by the Dutch explorer Willem de Vlamingh who arrived over 300 years ago in 1696. Over a century later a French scientific expedition undertook further exploration of the region, naming many of the features along the coast including Cape Peron. As Rockingham became more accessible it soon became a popular seaside resort for holiday makers and by the 1920’s was well recognised for it’s beaches, bathing, sailing, fishing and hotels.
