What We Love About Rottnest Island

Known as the home of the world’s happiest animal and a beautiful island playground, 'Rotto' is fantastic to visit all year round. Water adventurers have their choice from 63 beaches and 20 bays to sunbathe, swim, snorkel, and more. Divers will be thrilled at 135 species of tropical fish they can find beneath the surface, and over 13 shipwrecks to explore. Get around by bike or bus, and walk along the Wadjemup Bidi or join a hiking tour to find your favorite spot around the island. Meet a few quokkas and snap photos along the way, and relax at a beachfront eco-tent with the best coastal views. Just a ferry ride from Fremantle or Perth, Rottnest Island packs a full adventure you can enjoy in a day.
