Overview

Explore Rottnest Island on a full-day tour from Perth or Fremantle that takes care of all the details, including a high-speed ferry and bike rental to explore the car-free island. From Fremantle, start with a 25-minute high-speed ferry to Rottnest Island; departing from Perth includes a 1-hour cruise along Swan River to Fremantle, where the river meets the Indian Ocean. Upgrade to add lunch or snorkeling.

What to Expect

Depart from Fremantle via high-speed ferry, or depart from Perth for a 1-hour scenic cruise along the Swan River to Fremantle, followed by the high-speed ferry. Either way, enjoy the view from the water.

Cross the Indian Ocean to Rottnest, where you receive your rental bike and safety equipment. With all the details arranged ahead of time, your job is to relax and enjoy the island.

Bike the car-free island independently, exploring some of its 20 bays and 63 secluded beaches. Head for Bathurst or Wadjemup lighthouses, Pilot Boathouse, Rottnest Island Museum, or Lomas Cottage. As you ride, keep a lookout for seals at Cathedral Rocks or the island's native quokkas.

If you upgraded to include food, stop at Karma Rottnest for lunch. If you upgraded to include snorkeling, enjoy the underwater view.

You return either to Barrack Street Jetty in Perth or Shed B in Victoria Quay Fremantle.

Stay for longer than a day if you can

We had only 1 day on Rottnest. Hiring the bike was the best thing we could have done. We had a brilliant day - the bikes were really good. Only 3 gears and a rubber ‘chain’ - which worked really well. Would have been better...More

Perfectly tailored to the rider

Spent a day as a family ((11 & 9 y.o. girls) cycling the island. Variously found quokkas, lizards, endless bird life, secluded beaches, wildflowers. Able to stop where are when we wanted. Because the island has virtually no vehicles apart from slow moving tour buses,...More

Beautiful place

Great idea having the bikes, amazing island. Could easily spend a few nights here. Would definitely recommend bike hire, boat transfer. Could only manage a day here but would love to return for longer

Weekends might be slightly more crowded, but it doesn't really matter because there's lots of room for everybody on the island. I think the boats are always full. Probably the busiest time is during the local school holidays.
