Baldivis is, in our (completely unbiased) opinion, one of the best places to be during summer. With abundant blue skies, some of Perth’s best beaches right next door and more than its fair share of sunshine, there are so many great things you can do to while away the sunny days. 

We’ve done all the hard work for you and compiled a list of all the things you can do in and around Baldivis to make this summer the best yet.

The Beaches

Only a stone’s throw away from over 30 kilometres of pristine, turquoise coastline, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches. Whether you love sunset strolls, early morning dips, riding the waves or salty weekends with the kids, we guarantee there’s the perfect beach for you close by. Some of our favourites are Rockingham Beach, Secret Harbour and Safety Bay Beach.

The Soirées

The warm days and balmy nights make summer the perfect time to open the doors to your Brightwood home to friends and family. Sitting under the stars, enjoying great food and drinks, and making great memories with your nearest and dearest is what summer’s all about after all.

Summer Series

Every year The City of Rockingham stages family-friendly, free events at the city’s foreshores, parks, and reserves.

Shoalwater Island Marine Park 

Nothing says summer like natural plunge pools, snorkelling and water activities. Just 20-minutes away from home, you’ll find pristine islands, reefs, wildlife, and shipwrecks that make for the perfect day out. Plunge underwater to see vibrantly-coloured coral, paddle a kayak to get up close and personal to penguins, dolphins and sea lions or simply cool off in the natural spas at Penguin Island. It’s a marine life lover’s paradise.
