Rockingham Play Trails
Let’s go on a digital scavenger adventure!
We are excited to present the Rockingham Play Trails initiative to the community, developed in partnership with Nature Play WA.
Rockingham Play Trails takes a traditional scavenger hunt game to a whole new level. Using the Nature Play WA's Play Trails app, the community will visit various trail locations across the City to unlock challenges, solve quiz questions and score points. The local play trails are available for all families and their kids to enjoy all year round and is free to download.
Each play trail is created to motivate families to be active, have fun, learn and play together in local parks and reserves while maintaining physical distancing requirements. Each trail includes:
- Overview map and locations
- Challenge locations are plotted on the play trail map. Players visit each location to unlock a challenge.
- Challenges include creating something using nature, solving a quiz question, taking a photo or playing a mini game.
- Points are awarded for each completed challenge.
- Leader board
On completing the trail, players can view their score and position on the leader board. This can be found at the bottom right of the Rockingham Play Trails map. We encourage participants to use nicknames for the leader board.
We would love for all players to share their Rockingham Play Trails journey with other local players by posting pictures on social media and using #LearnThroughPlayRockingham.

Connect to Culture
There is more than meets the eye. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have been part of shaping the City into what it is today. Rockingham Play Trails is a great opportunity to learn about the traditional use of our local land and provides opportunities to connect to Nyoongar Country. Nyoongar country is made up of 14 clan groups with seven dialectic groups. The City of Rockingham borders the lands of the Whadjuk and Binjareb Nyoongar people.
Watch the video below from local Nyoongar tour guide Justin Martin and local Nyoongar woman Cheryl Martin to learn about the Nyoongar language, local wildlife, plants and their seasonal use at one of the Rockingham Play Trail Locations, Lake Richmond (Yadoba).
The City acknowledges the traditional owners and custodians of the land on which the City stands, the Nyoongar people, and pays respects to their elders both past and present.
