Description

If departing Perth (for an additional $29) between September and June you will get to enjoy a one hour journey down to Swan River to Fremantle. On the way you may see dolphins, pelicans and beautiful little coves only visible by boat. You will also see some of the most opulent houses in Australia, some worth in excess of AUD$20 million! Why not choose which one you would like to live in?

EXPLORE ROTTNEST  Ferry + Bike $85 from Fremantle (+ $29 from Perth)

From Fremantle it is a short thirty-minute ferry journey on a comfortable, modern vessel to the island. When you disembark your bicycles will be ready for your collection on the jetty. Make sure to wear your helmet! In Western Australia it is law to wear one at all times when riding a bicycle and a small fine can be issued if you are caught! Once you have your bike the island is your oyster. Perhaps grab a bite to eat at the bakery, a coffee at one of the cafés, or head to a beach and plunge into the clear, turquoise water that surrounds the island.

• Visit a clean and well protected island free of pretentious private villas and resorts.

• Enjoy the excitement of travelling over the sea to an island in a fast, modern vessel.

• Explore the numerous beaches and choose to either lay your beach towel next to a group of Perth locals at the popular Basin or find a secluded beach with no one else in sight.

• Have the native Quokkas around your feet. These little marsupials, similar to kangaroos, are gentle, friendly and unique to Rottnest Island. Please do not harm them, feed them or try to pick them up. Observe and enjoy these charming creatures.

• Ride on the well maintained and purpose-built bicycles around the whole island, or just to the nearest beach – the choice is yours. The bikes have gears and key locks.

• Relax on a safe and uncrowded island.

HISTORIC ROTTNEST Ferry + Train $110 from Fremantle (+ $29 from Perth)

Still preserved to this day, Rottnest’s WWII-era guns and tunnels stand as a stoic reminder of a pivotal moment in time.

Join us aboard the Captain Hussey for a scenic train ride to picturesque Oliver Hill, as we take you on a guided tour of Rottnest’s military history.

Situated just 18km west of the state capital of Perth, Rottnest Island was key in the line of defence of Western Australia during WWII. Most famously, Rottnest was home to a series of intricate, secret tunnels, and housed giant 9.2” guns as a defensive measure against any invading Axis forces.

These military artefacts are part of the rich and diverse timeline of Rottnest Island, which spans all of white settlement in Western Australia, and further back tens of thousands with indigenous culture.
