Welcome back to Rottnest Island
We’re as happy as a quokka with a new leaf to be welcoming you back to Rottnest Island!
The wellbeing of everyone in our Rottnest community, including our guests, are of the highest priority so things will look a little different when you arrive. Please pay close attention to the physical distancing signage in place before entering a premises. Hand sanitiser is also available throughout the island and you are encouraged to use it.
We’ve also been sprucing up the place while you’ve been gone and some of these renovation projects will continue in the coming months. We apologise for any inconvenience but trust us, it will be worth it.
While everyone in the Rottnest family would love to welcome you back with open arms, unfortunately, not all businesses will be open. Please refer to this list for what will be available and check back regularly for updates when planning your visit.
