Australia is hardly a country built on a hectic lifestyle, but Rottnest Island somehow manages to exude an atmosphere more relaxed than the mainland. The beautiful natural landscape is a haven of peace and tranquillity, and aesthetically satisfying enough to keep you occupied for a few days; explore the imposing cliffs and towering mountainside on the copious walking trails before grabbing your snorkelling gear and gracing the fresh blue waters. Snorkelling is a popular pastime with locals and tourists alike, though you won’t be hard-pressed finding a spot - 63 beaches and 20 bays decorate the coastline – even in the glorious summer months the waters are free to roam.
The inviting terrain is so stunning that embarking on a challenging walk can prove too tempting, however, the beaches are equally alluring in the summer months when the sun shines down on the golden sands and blue waters. Dotted around the coastline are copious spots for whale watching; join others hunting for enviable photos to impress their friends.
Most choose to hire a bike and cycle around the island, which is the desirable option in the warm weather. Cars are not permitted on the island to maintain its peaceful reputation, but there is a bus shuttle service in operation.
