What You Can Expect
Rotto, as the locals call it, is unchanged over time and still maintains its rustic charm, with original heritage buildings and minimal development. As an A-Class Nature Reserve, Rottnest is committed to maintaining the natural environment, with bicycles the main form of transport (cars are practically non-existent).
You can choose to start your full-day island experience starts from Perth with a cruise down the Swan River and enjoy morning tea while passing local landmarks and the riverfront houses of Millionaire’s Row to the port town of Fremantle. Or you can choose to join the cruise in Fremantle. From Fremantle, it's just a short hop across the ocean to Rottnest Island.
Get to know Rottnest Island on a 90-minute guided wildlife cruise around the island, discovering secluded bays and inlets inhabited by birds, dolphins, seals and other marine life. The afternoon is free to explore the island at your leisure before departing for the mainland. Hire a bike and cycle out to one of the bays, go for a swim at the Basin, or meet the quokkas – Rottnest’s cute resident marsupials.
In the afternoon, get back on the cruiser to make your way back to Fremantle or up the Swan River and back to Perth.
Excellent cruise to and from Rottnest Island. The Wildlife Cruise at Rottnest was both exciting and great fun - the Skipper was exceptional. This was the highlight of the day. The lunch at the Lodge was terrible. Poor quality food and not properly cook. It was a disgraceful lunch and everyone who took this option on the day complained. The whole trip was very good value but the lunch partially ruined what was a very good day adventure.
