See the whole of Rottnest in a day with a return ferry trip combined with a full-island bus tour.
Our fully air-conditioned bus – one of the few vehicles permitted on Rottnest – is a perfectly comfortable way to experience the beauty of this super-scenic isle. This 90-minute tour visits the island’s most spectacular locations, with insightful commentary shining a light on Rotto’s unique flora, fauna, history and culture. The bus stops at two key vantage points – Wadjemup lighthouse and the rugged West End – where passengers can hop off, take a short walk and soak up the views. You might even meet a quokka or two along the way.

It’s a very beautiful place! All the places are picture perfect, and the views are just stunning! If it’s your first time going there, it’s highly recommended to take the bus travelling from end to end. The bus ride itself takes one hour to finish, and the tour guide will actually give you some insight of the entire island’s history. A must go to place!
