A place about 60k's away from Perth. To the untrained eye, it's a very nice looking place, clean beaches and an almost touristy feel to it.. Spend a few hours and you get to see the real place. What is considered white trash in other countries passes down to "rocko" a few years later. Tapout shirts, bad tattoos, loose DC sneakers, rats tails and old commodores polute the streets while the females aged 15 are already mothers of multiple kids to said men.

Those from there will use smaller places within the area (namely Safety Bay, Waikiki, Port Kennedy or Baldivis) to hide the fact they live in Rockingham. Though nowdays, admitting you're from Baldivis just means you're a cashed up bogan (mine money) with the latest XR8 in the most "out there" colour available (diorehha green, purple or off-orange).

Famous residents include Sam Worthington whose scenes in Avatar had to be digitally altered to remove the large amount of tribal tattoos from his arms and neck. If you pause it at the right time, you can still see these. Since leaving for Perth, and somehow ending up in Hollywood, he has yet to come back.
Hey man, where are you from?
Oh, um, it's a place called not far from Fremantle..
Dude, are you hiding the fact you're from Kwinana?
You sound like you're proud?
Proud to not be from Kwinana at least, it's all we have going for us.
