Boating and fishing

In our extensive waterways, a boat is a fantastic way to experience the best Rockingham has to offer.

There are many recreational boat launching facilities along the Rockingham coast, as well as public jetties, courtesy boat moorings and excellent beach fishing locations.

Some areas of the Shoalwater Island Marine Park, particularly the Sanctuary Zones are off limits to recreational fishing and boating.

For information regarding demersal fishing and crabbing seasons in local waters, size limits and other restrictions visit the Department of Fisheries website

The Department of Transport website has a wealth of information on boating, including;

  • Marine Safety
  • Coastal data and navigation charts
  • Recreational Skippers Ticket
  • Mangles Bay private and public Moorings
