Trip to Rottnest Island
Took the ferry from Fremantle which was very quick and easy, however a little pricey. The Staff were very friendly and proficient with getting people off and on as well as providing bikes if you had hired one.
Would highly recommend hiring a bike if you want to explore the island as it’s much more efficient and undemanding compared to walking.
The island itself is beautiful with lovely beaches to relax on and the ever famous adorable quokkas hopping around.
Loved our visit

One to remember!
All the crew and facilities were amazing and they even stopped for us to see some whales when spotted! The bike hire was brilliant also, such a great way to explore the island and it's beautiful sights!

Total package!
We visited Rottnest Island for the first time and were recommend the services of Rottnest Express by the Perth information Centre.
Total package was worth the money.
Trip on boat from Freemantle and a 3 hour bus tour on the island itself which was incredibly enjoyable.
Our host on the bus was fantastic along with the driver so sorry I can't remember their names... they have been doing the 'runs' for a long time however their obvious love of the job made our experience truly memorable.
Went off the beaten track and even discovered some whale's migrating back on their long journey home.
Really great day... amazing scenery... lots of places to eat and stay if you want. Can see the island on foot.. (too hard) and bikes (not easy) we did a little on foot and very glad that we had the comfort of the bus tour as it takes you over the entire island.

The ride on the boat was smooth sailing.. very busy on the day ... just excellent!
