Rottnest Island has much to offer. Apart from pristine beaches and coves there are a host of other activities that will keep you occupied. Free from the cares of motorised traffic the island's favourite mode of transport is the bicycle. Enjoy leisurely rides around the island, as well as tennis, golf, organised tours and mini golf. There are also boat cruises and plenty of water sport facilities. Rottnest Lodge started out as a colonial barracks and prison over 150 years ago, and has now been converted into a comfortable and well appointed holiday lodge.
