Make the most of the beautiful Autumn weather with a day exploring the delightful Rottnest Island. Just a short ferry ride from Perth, this pristine setting is definitely a jewel in the crown of our sunniest state. Countless numbers of visitors staying at Conference centres in Perth will attest to that.
Rottnest, or Rotto if you prefer the colloquial name, features some of the world’s finest beaches as well as an abundance of unique plant and animal life. It is the home of the famous kangaroo-like marsupial known as the quokka.
As a car-free zone, Rottnest offers a very relaxed feel and its 63 sheltered beaches mean that the island is refreshingly uncrowded. Why not hire a bike and find those secluded beaches and secret surf spots over the other side of the island.
There’s a bus service and guided tours that allow you to explore the early colonial buildings and lighthouse, providing you with an insight into the island’s crucial role in World War I and II. The Rottnest Museum will further reveal the history of this beautiful island.
Scenic flights, a family fun park, tennis, lawn bowls and golf will make for great memories and if you are inclined toward the more active pursuits, have a go at kayaking, diving, surfing, boogie boarding or fishing.
Rottnest Island has a la carte restaurants, a hotel, a general store, a cafe and take-away outlets. Why not grab a snack from Rotto’s famous bakery and head to the beach, kick back and soak up the scenery .
Be sure to end your stay watching a glorious sunset over a glass of red at Hotel Rottnest which boasts one of the best beach-side views in the world.
