‘Whatever is good for your soul, do that’.
Even in the middle of winter, I still find myself craving walks along the beach. There’s just something beautiful about hearing the waves crash against the shore and getting lost in the colours of the landscape.
Last weekends’ day trip with Jesse took me back to Point Peron- a favourite place of mine. Located south of the river near Rockingham in a suburb called Peron is where you’ll find Point Peron. (NB: There is ample parking at the destination but bear in mind that there are no public restrooms.)
On the drive down to Point Peron, we stopped in at a local cafe in Cockburn (exit 14/Armadale Road off the Kwinana Freeway) to have brunch- because, let’s face it, what’s a weekend drive without food or coffee?! We ate at Cafe Royal, a cosy little cafe nestled near Cockburn Train Station. It was our first visit but I can offer nothing but praise for the staff and atmosphere and the food was delicious.
After we got on the road again (with full stomachs), we continued the drive to Point Peron via Rockingham. There are number of ways to reach the destination, we turned right down Patterson Road and followed the coast. I think one of the reasons why I adore Point Peron is because you are spoiled for choices of activities. You can dip you feet in the water, walk along the sand, take photos of the coast line, walk the trails, venture up to the historic WWII bunker site or walk up to the lookout.
A new activity involves smart phones and an app. So, if (like my boyfriend), you play Pokemon Go, you’ll find poke-stops, lures and numerous pokemon (even a Pikachu) around the area.
Whether it be hail, rain or sunshine, you’ll be in awe of Point Peron’s beauty and it’s definitely a nice place to visit on a winter day by yourself, with friends, your partner or family.
