Go on a scenic adventure

Your day-long Rottnest Island adventure commences with a tranquil cruise along the Swan River from Perth, accompanied by live commentary that breathes life into the serene surroundings. You can even depart from Fremantle on a quick ferry ride to Rottnest Island.

Explore Rottnest Island's wonders

Upon your arrival, why not rent a bike to roam around the island? Pedal at your own pace, charting a course filled with breathtaking views of secluded bays and untouched beaches. Let the morning's gentle breeze guide you to the southern bays, then in the afternoon, venture to the spectacular Basin, Parakeet Bay, and Little Armstrong Bay on the southwest.

A lesser-known gem of this experience is the included 90-min Eco Express boat tour, which circumnavigates the island, offering a unique perspective of the rugged coastline and a visit to the New Zealand fur seals at Cathedral Rocks. Did you know that Rottnest Island is home to the rare quokka, often termed the 'world's happiest animal'? Don't miss the chance to encounter these friendly marsupials and perhaps even capture a cherished 'quokka selfie'. As your day draws to a close, prepare to be whisked back to Perth or Fremantle, carrying with you unforgettable memories of a day well spent.
