The City of Cockburn is home to some of Western Australia's best wetlands, major tourism attractions, growing communities and leisure and recreational activities. There are many things to see and do and the City offers visitors and residents a supreme quality of life.

Stunning coastline

The City is home to coastal communities near protected and pristine beaches. These areas offer residents a laid-back lifestyle. Port Coogee is an idyllic harbour in one of Perth’s newest seaside communities. Coogee Beach and the Woodman Point recreation reserve house a range of leisure activities. Visitors can enjoy fishing, boating, kite-surfing, camping and hiking. The Australian Marine Complex (AMC) opens in a new window in Henderson is Western Australia’s largest ship-building centre. The AMC services the oil and gas, mining and resource sectors.

Pristine wetlands

Two chains of wetlands run north-south through the City as part of the Beeliar Regional Park opens in a new window. These areas provide habitat for local flora and fauna and are a natural oasis within Cockburn. Many of the wetland areas have walking and cycling trails, BBQs, public amenities and playgrounds. Bibra Lake Regional Playground offers children a unique nature play facility. The playground contains Aboriginal story-telling and has disability access.

Growing communities

The fast growing communities of the central and eastern parts of Cockburn have access to state-of-the-art facilities.
