FERRY TO ROTTNEST ISLAND

Make you way to the meeting point at the B - Shed Ferry Terminal in Fremantle. Please arrive at least 30 minutes early to check in and receive your ticket. Exact boarding times will be sent to all ticket holders closer to the date as ferry times are subject to change

DAY ONE

When you arrive at Rottnest Island, refresh with a barista coffee or fresh juice at the Lane Cafe before we begin our hiking adventures.

The hiking fun begins with a short transported trip to the West End where we begin along the Wardan Nara Bidi (Relax on Salmon Bay). Marvel at Peter Farmers Mamon Dreaming sculpture, check out Strickland Bay, Rottnest's famous surfing break, explore the Wadjemup lighthouse, and of course enjoy a pitstop for some lunch with a view.

For the afternoon of hiking, we head on to relax on Salmon Bay, admire huge Osprey stacks at salmon point, before marvelling at the crystal clear waters of Parker Point.

Now we merge onto the Ngank Yira Bidi Trail (uncover Bickley Battery) from Porpoise Bay, Henrietta Rocks, and Jubilee Hill, walking to the highest point of the Bickley Bay area and enjoying 360 degrees view of the Island and surrounding waters. Our last stop of the day is the Bickley Battery, where we can discovery the rocky intertidal shores on our journey back to Thomson Bay to conclude day one of our hike.

DINNER & ACCOMODATION

Rest and put your feet up in luxury, as we check in to Discovery Parks Glamping tents. Take a dip in the private resort pool, or relax in nature in the comfort of your tent before dinner.

As the sun sets, we will meet at Pinkies Beach Club for a beautiful two course dinner, and time to reflect on our favourite bits of the south of the Island.

DAY TWO

Day two begins with an indulgent buffet breakfast at Pinkies beach Club before embarking on our second day of hiking.

Now it's time to head back to the West End where our adventure for the day begins. As we embark on the Ngank Wen Bidi (Explore West End) (7.6km), we cover Marjorie Bay, Mabel Cove and Catherdral Rocks. If we are lucky, this is where we can view the seals from the viewing platform, providing the perfect vantage point to watch the New Zealand fur seals frolicking. We now head on to Cape Vlamingh and Radar Reef, another popular surfing spot for the adventurous.

After our West End adventure is complete, we enjoy a scenic journey by bus along the northern beaches coastline to Geordie Bay to enjoy a bite to eat, and begin our inland journey along the Gabbi Karniny Bidi trail (Discover The Salt Lakes) (8km). The final section of our hiking adventure takes us to view the calm, clear, turquoise colour of the breathtaking Little Parakeet Bay, before heading to Lakes Boardwalk, where we can experience the illusion of walking on water on the boardwalk. We can stop and watch the birds dancing on the salt lakes, recognised as wetlands of National Importance, before we head back past Vlamingh lookout, Thomson Bay, and to the Bathurst Lighthouse on our journey back to Pinky Beach.

RETURN FERRY TO FREMANTLE

We board our ferry and begin our journey across the sea to Fremantle where our journey comes to an end in time for the sun to set.
