We head to Rottnest Island to explore some of the best 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.
We head off to the West End where we embark on our 8 km hike along the Ngank Wen Bidi (Explore West End). We begin with a scenic drive from Settlement out to Narrowneck. Our hike begins visiting a popular surfing spot for the adventurous ( don’t worry, we won’t be surfing!) at Radar Reef, before heading onto Cape Vlamingh to see the highlights of the natural arch, crashing waves, and osprey eagles. Now it’s on to Catherdral Rocks, where we can view the seals from the viewing platform, providing the perfect vantage point to watch the New Zealand fur seals frolicking. Mabel Cove is up next, and some say they can see a crocodile in the rocks in this beautiful protected bay. Mabel Cove rounds out the spectacle of the west-end guided hike. This stunning bay is a favourite! Enjoy a dip in the natural lagoon in the reef to cool off before a relaxing bus ride back to settlement.
