Port Kennedy

(4.5/5 based on a few reviews for 1 attraction)
Things to do: golf
Port Kennedy is an outer southern suburb of Perth, the capital city of Western Australia, located within the City of Rockingham.Port Kennedy is built on Becher Point and because of its geomorphological history it is home to an unusual wetland formation, called the Becher Wetland Suite. These wetlands are linear in form rather than circular and have formed in dune swales parallel to the coast. Some wetlands have been absorbed into the Port Kennedy golf course and the remainder are protected in the Port Kennedy Scientific Park.The Threatened Ecological Community FCT19, Sedgelands in Holocene Dune Swales, is known to occur in these wetlands.HistoryPort Kennedy is named after a feature in the southeastern corner of Warnbro Sound which was initially named by Surveyor-General John Septimus Roe in 1859 after the Governor of Western Australia (1855–1862), Sir Arthur Edward Kennedy.On 17 November 1953, a Townsite of Port Kennedy was declared. However, when the suburb was named in 1974, it was named Becher after Point Becher, located within its boundaries. On 1 June 1990, the suburb was renamed Port Kennedy.EducationPort Kennedy Primary School opened in 1996 and is part of the Department of Education and Training's Peel District. Initially with an enrolment of 300 students, the school has grown to about 670 (2009) with a staff of approximately 55.
