Rottnest Island or “Rotto” as the locals like to call it is located 18 kilometres off the coast of Perth in Western Australia.
We had Rottnest Island on our Australian bucket list, and we think maybe you should too.
With over 60 picturesque beaches and bays and top spots for snorkeling, diving, kayaking, swimming and fishing Rotto is a true island paradise.
Measuring 24 kilometres round trip by road, Rottnest Island is best explored by bicycle as it’s a car-free-zone making it a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
The locals of Perth are incredibly lucky to have this island getaway at their doorstep. Seriously, if I lived locally I’d be catching the 25-minute ferry over more often than not.
And you’ll be sure to meet lots of the true locals getting around, the QUOKKA, a small macropod about the size of a domestic cat.
Enjoy the photos, and just picture yourself here.
