About Oliver Hill Battery, Rottnest Island

Historically, this may be the most significant site on the island. It’s a gun encampment, one of the seven that were set up during WWII to defend Australia against bombardment by warships. This one is the only preserved battery of the original set. In addition to the guns that you can still see here there are also tunnels, railways, and the remains of old defence structures.

Though guided tours are possible, self-guided walks tend to be more popular.

You can arrive here by train from the settlement. The ride costs AUD 29 for the train and the tour, or just AUD 20 for the train ride.

  • I went on a guided tour through Olvier Hill Battery. The tour guide was relaxed and very informative. We got to see the inner workings on the guns and also when the guns we're set up by the British. Please take the tour because you will find out about colonial Austrlian war history.

  • A tour everyone on the island should explore, recommend to get the train or the walk up the hill is hard.

  • Very interesting. Worth the walk from the light house.

  • Went on the underground tour. Excellent! John was a great guide too.

  • Lots of history to see here, why not catch the train!
