Once you are on Rottnest island the itinerary is up to you. Use pedal power to explore the island and snorkel at the various spots! Unleash your adventurous spirit as you feel the breeze in your hair using pedal power to cycle your way around the island or combine both bike and snorkel for an unforgettable land and sea experience. There is no drinking water or food available outside the Thomson Bay and the Geordie Bay settlement areas, so don’t forget your supplies - water, lunch, sun cream, bathers, towel and a camera are essentials! During summer, bays on the south offer protection in the mornings from the prevailing easterly winds. By afternoon the famous Fremantle doctor comes in the south-west making the bays to the north such as The Basin, Parakeet Bay and Little Armstrong Bay the most enjoyable. The island is 11km long by 4km wide and takes approximately 3.5 hours to ride around.
