See the best of Rottnest Island on this full-day, all-inclusive tour of Western Australia's most beautiful island, just 19 kilometers off the coast of Perth.  Begin your day at Hillary's Boat Harbor in Perth, where you can explore the harbor and savor a delicious morning tea before traveling to Rottnest Island. You will get there on a lightning-fast ocean crossing aboard the local partner's high-speed ferries. It is recommended to arrive at Hillary's Boat Harbor at 09:00 for the 10:00 ferry departure.  Then, discover everything this beautiful island has to offer on a 3.5-hour all-inclusive fully guided bus tour. Explore the stunning beauty of this A Class reserve in air-conditioned comfort, taking in the amazing fauna and flora of the island, stunning beaches, woodlands, and incredible salt lakes - all ending in a unique historic train ride. Enjoy a delicious picnic lunch as part of the bus tour.  On the bus tour, you will visit all of Rottnest's must-see locations including the Wadjemup Lighthouse, Henrietta rocks, Oliver Hill gun fortification and tunnels, Cape Vlamingh, and the majestic lookout point at Cathedral Rocks. Learn all about the major natural habitats found on the island, as well as about Rottnest's cultural and historical heritage from maritime to military, and what future developments are planned for this beautiful spot.  When you're ready, return to Perth by ferry.

The ferry was very loud and if you stood at the side of the outdoor deck you ended up breathing in exhaust fumes. I was very impressed with the bus host who organised gluten free lunch for me at short notice. He also went out of his way to retrieve something I left on the bus.

Rottnest island definitely a very worthwhile and amazing trip.

Love the way the wild life has been protected. Saw our little Quokers but there was also peacocks, skinks, crows turtles and dolphins and the possibility of spotting some whales on the way over. The ferry was well operated clean and the staff professional and friendly. The commentary on the way over and back was very interesting and full of historical facts about Perth and the island.

A good day out was informative.

Our opinion is that the Lunch should be served in a separate area away from people not on the same tour. Was embarrassing eating the good on the train in front of people not on the same tour and not getting lunch. Possibly a table set somewhere for clients to eat their lunch would be a good plan.
