Rottnest Island Pedal & Flipper
Discover Rottnest Island by bicycle and fill your days with endless fun! Cycling is environmentally friendly and a fun recreational activity for all ages. As Rottnest Island has essentially no cars, cycling is also one of the best modes of transport on the Island.
Rottnest Island Pedal & Flipper is the largest bike and equipment hire facility in the Southern Hemisphere with over 1,300 bikes and specialty equipment available for hire. In addition to the large range of bikes and equipment, you can find helmets, locks, island information and cycling advice. The Pedal & Flipper team is trained to personally fit customers to bikes to ensure optimum comfort and safety. You can also grab an Island map, courtesy chilled fountain water and advice on cycling safely! As a bike hire service, we unfortunately don’t have options for visitors who cannot ride bikes. Tricycles and tandems are not deemed a safe option for those who cannot ride. View hop on/hop off bus options for getting around the Island.

Rottnest Island Country Club
Originally built in 1961, the Rottnest Island Country Club has provided golfers with a thrilling 9-hole layout for over 50 years.
In mid-2013 the golf course underwent the most impressive refurbishment in its history, labelled by some as the greatest enhancement to Rottnest Island in it's history.
The original sand greens and artificial tee boxes made way for new grass greens and tees, designed by renowned Australian architect Ben Davey.
These new renovations have given the Country Club a new lease of life, with multiple teeing positions on all 9 holes providing golfers of all abilities an enjoyable experience whether playing 9 or 18 holes.
In addition to the golf course, lies an artificial lawn bowling green, licensed clubhouse and full function facilities.
The Country Club is now managed by Golf Oracle Pty Ltd.
We invite you to come and experience one of Western Australia’s most unique golf courses, in the idyllic setting of Rottnest.
