On just a short 30 minute ferry ride, you can escape the hustle and bustle of the city and head off on an island getaway for a day, or a week. From the stunning beaches to untouched hike trails, there are some amazing things to find just off the shore of the mainland at Rottnest Island. From “walking on water’ boardwalks, to seal spotting, relaxing on Salmon Bay, and marvelling the lighthouses and WWII battery bunkers, Rottnest Island will provide you with a slice of heaven just minutes from Perth.
Rottnest Island sits just offshore from the city of Perth, and is a protected nature reserve. With so many unique beaches and bays, Rottnest Island offers a highlight reel of some of Australia’s best beaches.
Hike any section of the Wadjemup Bidi network; a series of walk trails that will take you across spectacular coastal headlands, past stunning inland lakes and encounter both natural and man-made attractions along the way. Also home to the quokka, the further out of the main settlement that you venture, the more of these little guys that you will discover in their natural habitat.
