Two Rocks is an outer suburb at the northern edge of Perth, the state capital of Western Australia, located 61 kilometres (38 mi) north 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 area.
While the suburb has a large area, as at the 2001 census, the suburb's entire population lived within a 2.3 km2 (0.9 sq mi) region near the coast on either side of the marina. Large sections of the suburb are fenced off due to unexploded ordnance left behind from past military activity in the area.
A large bushfire in the area in 1991 destroyed many dwellings in the suburb.
The suburb of Two Rocks takes its name from two prominent rocks offshore from Wreck Point. It was approved as a suburb name in 1975.
