You will get there on a lightning-fast ocean crossing aboard the local partner's high-speed ferries. It is recommended to arrive at Hillary's Boat Harbor at 9:00 AM for the 10:00 AM ferry departure. 

Then, discover everything this beautiful island has to offer on a 3.5-hour all-inclusive fully guided bus tour.

Explore the stunning beauty of this A-Class reserve in air-conditioned comfort, taking in the amazing fauna and flora of the island, stunning beaches, woodlands, and incredible salt lakes - all ending in a unique historic train ride. Enjoy a delicious picnic lunch as part of the bus tour. 

On the bus tour, you will visit all of Rottnest's must-see locations including the Wadjemup Lighthouse, Henrietta rocks, Oliver Hill gun fortification and tunnels, Cape Vlamingh, and the majestic lookout point at Cathedral Rocks. 

Learn all about the major natural habitats found on the island, as well as about Rottnest's cultural and historical heritage from maritime to military, and what future developments are planned for this beautiful spot.

The Grand Island Tour was really thorough. We saw what we felt was the whole coast line. Guide was full of knowledge. We had a 6 yo with us, I felt the tour was a bit long for him, he fell asleep on the bus leg of the tour. It was a shame there wasn’t time for a quick swim at the end… the beaches were stunning.

Highly recommend this tour. Jason our guide who drove the train and then our bus was excellent . He obviously loves his job and was enthusiastic in his commentary and willingness to show us as much as possible. The tour of Oliver Hill run by volunteers was very enlightening as well, The included lunch was great too.

Make sure you take travelers medication before the ferry ride to avoid sea sickness. Tours are great though bus ride at end could have made a stop at one of the lighthouses for better viewing. Would have been great to get a few more photographs but we were on the bus a lot
