What To Expect
Known to locals as Rotto, the island is beloved for its tranquil, relaxing environment, due largely to its no-cars-allowed policy. Explore the island independently; You might like to settle on one of the 20 bays and 63 secluded beaches or perhaps visit the iconic Wadjemup or Bathurst Lighthouses. Choose to visit attractions such as Lomas Cottage, Rottenest Island Museum or Pilot Boathouse. You might like to ride to the West End where you can stroll along the boardwalk admiring coastal views and lookout for seals at Cathedral Rocks and keep your eyes peeled for humback whales - late September - November. When you stop for breaks, make sure to keep your eyes open for quokkas, the local marsupials who call the island home.
Your trip ends with the return ferry ride to Fremantle or Perth.
