Two Rocks is an outer suburb at the northern edge of Perth, the state capital of Western Australia, located 61 kilometres (38 mi) northwest of the city's central business district. It is part of the City of Wanneroo local authority and represents the furthest northern extent of the Perth metropolitan region.
While the suburb has a large area, at the 2001 census the suburb's entire population was recorded living within a 2.3 km2 (0.9 sq mi) region near the coast surrounding Two Rocks marina. However in more recent years residential development has spread to areas to the east and south-east of the established suburb. Large sections of the suburb are fenced off due to unexploded ordnance left behind from past military activity in the area.
A major landmark in the suburb is a large limestone sculpture of King Neptune by American sculptor Mark Le Buse, a remnant of the defunct Atlantis Marine Park, which operated between 1981 and 1990. The sculpture, which had sat abandoned and fenced off since the park's closure, was heritage listed by the Western Australian Heritage Council in 2006, before being restored and the surrounding area reopened to the public in May 2015.In addition to the marina, the suburb also contains a small shopping centre, a public library, and two schools: the private Atlantis Beach Baptist College and the public Two Rocks Primary School.
