Rottnest literally translates to 'rats’ nest'. Today, having a photo taken alongside the 'rats', known as Quokkas, is one of the main attractions for visitors to the island.

Our tips for Rottnest

Hire a bike to get around the island. It would cost $30 per day (approx.). Walking is of course a great way to explore the gorgeous island too. But a bike can really help you get around and is an ideal mode of transport on the island. Book your air tickets and tours at least 18 months in advance to grab the best deals. Accommodations and activities tend to get booked out so make sure you have the first mover advantage. Avoid visiting during school holidays as the island can get extremely crowded. You can stock up at the general store on Rottnest Island if you want to save money on food. However, fresh fruits and vegetables can be a bit pricey so you’d be well-advised to carry your own.
