What to Expect
Travel reference:

Come check out Western Australia's favourite holiday destination, Rottnest Island, with a same-day or flexible return ferry ticket on the Rottnest Express!


Departing from either Perth or Fremantle, you'll enjoy a comfortable and safe cruise across to Rottnest Island on the fast Rottnest Express ferries. Once you're on the island you'll discover unspoilt white sand beaches with clear turquoise water and have them all to yourself. Rottnest Island has more than 63 secluded beaches and 20 bays across just 19 square kilometres of land. While you're at the beach, you can go snorkelling, the best way to explore Rottnest's underwater playground. Alternatively, jump on a bike and explore Rottnest on land - riding a bike is so much more fun when there's no private cars to contend with.



Rottnest Island is an A-Class Reserve, meaning all the native plants and animals are protected by law. The island's most famous star is the Quokka – the happiest animal on earth! The Quokka is the only mammal native to Rottnest and can be found almost everywhere on the Island. You can also witness the annual migration of Humpback Whales from September to November from land or on a whale watching cruise. Plus, there is a healthy colony of New Zealand Fur Seals at Cathedral Rocks and pods of dolphins that regularly play in the waters.
