Full description
Rottnest Island is an idyllic playground for the locals of Perth. Just a 25 minute Ferry journey from Fremantle or 40 minutes from Hillarys Boat Harbour, you’ll be at the island in no time. You will find stunning beaches, pristine turquoise coloured water, and an untouched environment there. Home to the Quokka and many other native species.

This Segway adventure takes you off-road to some of Rottnest’s most scenic places. Get to know your Segway in an off-road experience area before embarking on an amazing tour. Delve into the military heritage of Rottnest and its pivotal role in the defence of Fremantle Harbor. Visit the Bickley Battery gun emplacements and Jubilee Hill lookout, and learn how important Rottnest Island was in defence strategy during World War II. You’ll also have time to appreciate the pristine coastline and natural environment during your tour, pausing for photographs along the way.

The tour guides are all accredited, with some having won state and national awards. They’ll tell you about the rich and diverse history of the Rottnest Island and point you in the right direction for other things to do while you’re on the Island. No experience is required. Segways are easy to ride and you'll be trained to ride with confidence before beginning the tours. Suitable for children 12 years old and over. There is no upper age limit.

The Segway tour was awesome. Great guide that was humidors, yet was always focusing on safety. To tour Rottnest Island on a Segway is the only way to go. Far better than biking the hills. And stopping anywhere you want was the best.
