Rottnest Island (aka Rotto) sits just off the Western Australia coast, about 18km from Fremantle.
A small island that can be cycled around, stopping off on the way for a swim or snorkel in any of the countless, beautiful beaches. Cars aren't allowed access to the island only those permanently stationed on the island for maintenance and delivery purposes.
The island is a mecca for wildlife and a chance to encounter the quokka, a marsupial about the size of a domesticated cat. Only existing in the south-west of WA, Rottnest is a haven for them. This holiday island for day trippers and overnight stays is accessible easily by ferry and is a must-see when visiting the west coast of Australia.
