As Rottnest Island operates on peddle-power, there are no cars on the island, all transport is either by bus or bicycle. If you would like to include bike hire in your booking, please see the alternative tour here. You might choose instead to take advantage of the public transport buses that run loops around the island for a small fee - very handy to get around.
Quokkas may be the cute animal of choice for most people on Rottnest, but there are also colonies of seals and sea lions that call the island home. During the whale migratory season (Sept to Nov) you may be lucky to catch these majestic animals as they pass by close to shore.
