Perth Itinerary Day 2: Day Trip to Rottnest Island (for Water Sports Enthusiasts)

Take ferry from Perth’s Barrack Street Jetty to Rottnest Island. (When at the jetty, remember to look out for Swan Bells. More on Swan Bells later.) Rottnest Island has 63 stunning beaches, 20 beautiful bays and many coral reefs of car-free nature reserve: bike to Oliver Hill for guns and tunnels; swim at Little Parakeet Bay; lunch at a cafe at Geordie Bay; snorkel at Parker Point; scuba dive at Fish Hook Bay; and surf at Strickland, Salmon and Stark Bays.
But since my parents are aged, we didn’t go to Rottnest Island. Give this a miss if you’re not a sea sports person.
