About The Owner
Steve Brooks started Perth Weather Live in November 2011, after Returning from the Pilbara in Western Australia's North West.
Steve's Addiction to Weather started when he was younger being interested in Lightning Storms, but always AND still jumps at the Thunder, during Steve's stint in South Hedland, Western Australia, he started the Weather Website South Hedland Weather after people always saying its always 2 degrees hotter in South Hedland than it is in Port Hedland, Located about 15km apart.
Within a Week of commencing South Hedland Weather, Steve had the figures that proved that it was correct.
Steve handed the everyday running of South Hedland Weather over to Ben Hamilton, who now has his Weather Station feeding information into the website
Before Returning to Perth, Steve started building Perth Weather Live and had many ideas on what road he was going to head down with the design and ideas he wanted to use, Steve discovered that there was around 30 other Personal Weather Stations around Perth, he wanted to get them on onto 1 Website.
Why do People use Personal Weather Stations?? The Bureau of Meteorology has 18 stations located throughout Perth, installing Personal Weather Stations increases the number of stations around Perth for the General Public to check to see what the Temperature is doing in a Certain area or what the Winds are doing before someone heads down to the Boat Ramp.

Just a 40 minute drive South of Perth, the seaside town of Rockingham offers many memorable experiences. Rockingham's slogan is 'where the coast comes alive', and it certainly lives up to this claim. Go snorkelling, sailing, or surfing at the beautiful beaches, or try the jetties for fishing and crabbing. Rockingham has a number of beaches safe for children. Go Swimming with the wild dolphins when you take a tour out to the dolphin pods offshore, or do a dolphin watch tour. The dolphin watch vessel has been designed for you to get as close to the dolphins as possible in comfort and safety. It features a viewing platform at the front where the dolphins ride just beneath your feet. You can also just relax in the clear sheltered water of the Cockburn Sound or head to nearby Point Peron for some Scuba diving. Take the ferry out to nearby Penguin Island to see the gorgeous little penguins up close. Penguin Island is home to about 1,200 little penguins, Penguin feeding and expert commentaries are conducted at 10:30am, 12:30pm and 2:30pm daily and the Penguin Express departs daily from 9am to 3pm. The island is also a very important nesting, feeding and roosting site for over 50 species of seabirds and the little island boasts one of the largest breeding colonies of pelicans in WA. You can visit the interpretive centre to gain an understanding of the diminutive birds. Take a 45 minute glass bottom boat cruise to Seal Island to view rare Australian Sea Lions. Today Rockingham has ample shops for the shopping enthusiasts, plenty of restaurants, cafes and pubs, and a selection of accommodation from self-contained luxury apartments to caravan parks which can be all booked through the Rockingham Visitor Centre located at 19 Kent Street, Rockingham.
