Welcome to our community

The Naval Base Shacks consists of 178  shacks settled on the mainland, along Cockburn Road in Henderson.  It has been a family holiday destination for thousands of Western Australians since 1933. A diverse range of people from all walks of life enjoy the Naval Base Shacks. It is a place where all people, of all occupations and walks of life mix together and enjoy this amazing holiday destination, the only of its kind in the Perth Region.

Naval Base Caravan Park has been used for recreation by many generations of families from not only Cockburn but from a wide range of metropolitan and country locations.

It has an exceptional social historical value as a popular and well used holiday destination. Naval Base Caravan Park is a good example of holiday camps which used to exist along the Western Australian coastline but have disappeared in the face of development.

The Future Management of the Site

The Naval Base Shacks site is currently being reviewed by the City of Cockburn, who have set up a  Reference Group to look at the future management of the site, with the view to develop a management plan.

We encourage interested parties to share their views with the City of Cockburn, and remind the City as to why it is such a unique location, well worth preserving. As well as what you would like to see in the future.
