Perhaps hire bikes and cycle the coastal roads, dive in to swim and snorkel at the beaches, or spot quokkas in the nature reserve.

Due to heavy traffic on the roads, we arrived a little late for the 8am ferry today at Northport which we had pre-purchased. The ferry was right there but just leaving. The staff kindly drove us to Freo B-shed to catch the same ferry which would depart at 8.30am there. We had

I love Rotto, and Rottnest Express are a great way to get to the Island. Nothing is an issue for them. We had to change our return ferry date to come home a few days earlier then planned - no problem. All my dealings with REX have been excellent, I’m a Red Rider and also

The fastest and easiest way to go to Rottnest is the Ferry. The Rottnest Express from Perth itself was an experience, to sit on the deck and enjoy the wind in the face and hair was fantastic. It was a hot and windy day and the ride was quite rough, but it was perfect.
