Point Peron Marina
This long stretch of land at the southern end of Cockburn Sound – Point Peron is a popular place for families and social gatherings.
For generations of Western Australian school children, Point Peron holds special memories as the location for school camps.
These memories are in danger of remaining just that due to the proposed land grab and canal-style marina for luxury housing in this beautiful public reserve.
The development will take land from the Rockingham Lakes Regional Park, which includes a protected Bush Forever site.
Lynn MacLaren is also concerned about the level of Aboriginal consultation for the project, an important consideration given that it's a significant heritage site.
Senator Rachel Siewert is calling on the Commonwealth Government to stand up and protect the land by ensuring it is used according to the conditions under which it was passed over to the state; for recreational purposes, not development.
"This land was handed over for the benefit of all Western Australians, not just developers and the select few that can afford to buy into a 'canal estate'," said Ms Siewert.
Point Peron is surrounded by the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park. The beaches are ideal for safe swimming, snorkelling and exploring small bays and rocky outcrops. You can often spot some friendly dolphins in this marine haven.
