Tour Overview

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 10km hike along the Ngank Wen Bidi (Explore West End). We begin with our first stint of beach walking along Strickland Bay, before coming across Radar Reef, a popular surfing spot for the adventurous. We then have a moment to enjoy the beautiful views at Cape Vlamingh, before heading onto 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. We conclude our short and sweet Island hike with a stroll along Mabel Cove and Marjorie Bay. 

With the afternoon open for you to enjoy the Island how your heart desires, take a dip in the big blue at Mabel Cove, The Basin, or Thomson Bay, relax with a cold one at Hotel Rottnest, or indulge in a baked delight from the local bakery.  The options are endless, and you don’t need to leave the island until our later afternoon ferry departure.
