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.

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

Great day

Bikes are in OK condition, although the gear only goes to 3 and there are A LOT of hills in the area! Overall pretty good day trip to Rottnest Island, plenty to do and see. They allow me to change the return time too.

Beautiful island, full of quokkas, but the bikes should be better

The weather was beautiful as we sped over the rough water from Fremantle to Rottnest Island. After disembarking, we were given our bikes for the day. The tires were OK and the seats adjustable, but the gears were virtually non-existent: I had 3 and my...More

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.

Yes, the Rottnest Express bikes are rubbish, but we still managed to do the whole island tour (22 km) on 2 or 3 gears in about 3 hours with frequent stops for quokka-watching. I think the people with Captain Cook tours had... More
