What people are saying about Rottnest Island

Excellent day out, but GetYourGuide could do better

The Rottnest Island ferry and bus tour package made for an excellent day out, made all the better by our fabulous Scottish tour guide Dez (we love you Dez!). The Island is amazing, even in the winter months. The only issues we had came from using GetYourGuide to book out tickets - upon booking they didn't send us all the information we should have received by email, which meant we missed our bus pick-up from our hostel (we were walking distance from the ferry terminal, so not the end of the world). We were also not warned that upon arriving at the ferry terminal we needed to queue up to get official tickets for our bookings, but by happy accident we queued up and got them anyway. Thankfully these hiccups didn't stop us having a great day, and all the ferry terminal staff and staff on the Island were super helpful and informative when we had any problems. Overall, we had a great day!

Exceptional - must see is the Gunnery Battery

Our visit was simply awesome it involved a bus tour and Train ride which was the real eye opener as we got to see the two massive Guns employed to Protect Freemantle Harbour during the 2nd World War. Our tour Guide for the train Ride and Bus Tour Sheila was tremendous and the guides for the Gunnery Battery where most knowledgeable and very passionate in History.

Rottnest Island is an interesting place to visit

Overall it was a worth while doing trip, however it would be good to have more options of returning earlier as on an overcast cool day last few hours were wasted on the island. Also boat ride can get very bumpy for those suffering from the sea motion sickness. Buffet lunch was very basic and had very limited choices.

Ground tour activities on the coach and at the Gunnery were excellent

A very pleasant excursion. Ferry ride was unremarkable although somewhat 'bouncy'. Coach driver (Bob) was very informative and Gunnery tour volunteer (Len) was excellent. All in all a trip well worthhwhile.

I was surprised how good the experience was.

The people and the service were first rate. It was clean and interesting. The was a good range of options for food. The volunteers gave useful advice and were easy to find.
