Rockingham Wild Encounters

Wildlife in Rockingham

The main operator licensed to take people to Penguin Island, 5km south of Rockingham within the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park, this outfit runs the Penguin Island Ferry and a Discovery Centre on the island, where you can see and feed the island's resident penguins.

Other tours take you out to see sea lions and dolphins. Research suggests that human interaction with sea mammals potentially alters their behaviour – it might pay to look but not touch.
