Perth Airport lies about 10km to the east of the Perth CBD, which places it some 55km from Rockingham. Perth is well-known for its effective transport infrastructure, which includes a range of public transport options between Perth Airport and Rockingham. There are buses and shuttles, for example, which can be a cost effective way to get from one destination to the other. But it takes time, and you can expect plenty of stops and possible transfers along the way. It’s also important to remember that public transport attracts a per-person price, which means that travelling in large groups, or with your family, can be more expensive than it seems. Taxis are another option, and they don’t attract a charge per person. However, that’s often outweighed by the large and unpredictable price that comes with longer journeys like the one from Perth Airport to Rockingham. That’s why we would recommend a private transfer with Car Australia. You get affordability, predictability, and reliability. But the best part is that you get to jump the queue.

How long does it take?

It normally takes us 50 minutes to get from Perth Airport to Rockingham, which is a fast journey considering the distances travelled. Although it’s Australia’s fourth largest city, Perth has a reasonable reputation in terms of traffic, so it’s not common to encounter long delays due to congestions. In fact, we normally expect travel times of only ten minutes longer during peak hour, when compared to the average. In non-peak periods, it’s normally a journey of just 45 minutes or so. Our drivers are all professional chauffeurs, too, with combined decades of local experience. You can rest assured that they will be taking you to your destination via the quickest and most direct route possible.

Perth Airport: Before you leave for Rockingham

Perth Airport caters for domestic, regional, and international passengers with flights arriving from all over the country and the world. If your flight out of Perth Airport is delayed, then you’ll get the chance to enjoy some of the facilities it has on offer. They include dining, retail, and entertainment opportunities throughout the four separate terminals, as well as free Wi-Fi in each. There is an abundance of space for drivers to wait, collect, and drop passengers off, including disabled spaces, and free kerbside spaces. You can rest assured that your driver will be waiting for you in Perth Airport when you arrive, though, so you needn’t concern yourself with the logistics of your airport transport.


At Car Australia, direct transport is what we offer, at all times of the day or night. We can get you from Perth Airport to Rockingham, and we can get you in and around Rockingham once you arrive. All you need to do is tell us where you need to be, and when. That is a useful way to see the many sighs of Rockingham, which would take far too long to see on foot, or by public transport – especially if you’re only there for a day or two! Rockingham sits beside the Indian Ocean, to the south west of the city centre. It is named for one of the three ships that originally brought settlers to Rockingham in 1830, as a part of Thomas Peel’s chartered operation. That same coastline that accommodated the Rockingham now sits around Mangles Bay, not far from Australia’s largest naval fleet.
