Hocking is a suburb of Perth, Western Australia, located within the City of Wanneroo. Until 1994 it was part of the suburb of Wanneroo. The suburb was named after Herbert Hocking, a local landowner, first chairman of the Wanneroo Road Board and member of the Board from 1903-1931. He was also treasurer of the Agricultural Society in 1909.
The suburb is home to many new houses (many still under construction[when?]), much vacant land under development, as well as remnant market gardens. The primary new housing estate is Belvedere Hills, developed by the Satterley Property Group.
