I emigrated from UK about 10 years ago and have lived in Rockingham since, I now consider it to be my home town.
Map here for those who like to know where it is. http://www.whereis.com/whereis/getMap.do?ref=homeMap
Some people will consider Rockingham a sleepy little place. If you want the hustle and bustle of a city centre and exciting nightlife, it's probably not the place for you. If you want stunning beaches (lots of the them) parks with protected wildlife, long walks along the beachfronts and all the watersports you can think of, then you might like it here.
The summers are hot and dry, the winters mild with some rain (by European standard we don't really have a winter, there's never more than a very slight frost. It's more like spring, summer, very hot summer, more summer, autumn then spring again and it doesn't rain a lot even in winter.) It's July and I have Jonquils and Asters flowering and passionfriut ripening on the vine.
Point Peron is one of my favouite beaches in Rockingham. It is the only one with rocks!
It's a bit of a scramble to get down on the beach, but worth the effort.
We have often seen dolphins in the bay here.
