Rottnest Island: So much more than swimming and bike riding

Okay, so when you think of Rottnest Island, you may not always feel a sense of adrenaline and intrigue. However, there are plenty of adventures to be had if you know where to look. Don’t just limit yourself to swimming and bike riding when there are so many exciting Rottnest Island tours, ocean and island activities to be experienced.

Discover shipwrecks with Rottnest Island diving

What could be more fun than a swim in any number of crystal clear bays? A swim in the crystal clear bays amongst abandoned ships of course! Rottnest Island snorkelling offers you access to the region’s most exciting attraction: the shipwrecks. The Shark and the Uribes shipwrecks are easy and accessible. The Shark in particular is great for kids with safe, still waters and the wreck being only 50m out from the beach. The Uribes stays well preserved in an area sheltered from strong winds. More experienced snorkelers can also visit the Kiryo Maru shipwreck, which lies in pieces in the deep water.

Rottnest diving also exposes you to an enchanting world, with limestone caverns and tunnels. You can see many soft corals and sea creatures that will inspire a sense of wonder. Rottnest Island scuba diving has something for every traveller.

Guided tour of the Oliver Hill Battery

Discover the history with underground battle tunnels and museums

Did you know that there is a rich tapestry of underground tunnels on the island, once used to defend Australian ports from enemy warships?

Take an intriguing guided tour of these reconditioned pathways and learn about the Island’s role in World War II. Oliver Hill Battery is the only preserved emplacement in Australia that has not been stripped of its 9.2-inch guns, making this a must-see for history buffs.

You can also visit Rottnest Museum to learn about the fascinating history of the region, including the marine wrecks and European settlement. Located in the centre of Thomson Bay settlement is the Salt Store Gallery, the Exhibition Centre, Lomas Cottage and Pilot Boathouse, where you can also soak up the history and culture of the island. Wadjemup Lighthouse is another key attraction that provides breathtaking all-round views.
