    We had the best day riding bikes around this gorgeous island and meeting the adorable quokkas. The ride was a little challenging in the heat, not much shade on the island, but the scenery more than made up for it! The ferry ride to/from Perth was enjoyable as well with free coffee and informative commentary in the morning and wine/beer tasting and live music on the afternoon return. Highly recommend this tour!

    This was an amazing package. We booked many adventures through Viator and we were NOT disappointed with any of the trips. Every trip was great and well organised. We booked all our trips over the year before we went to Australia and it worked out superb.
    thank you.

    Great ship. Great staff. Well organized. Good commentary. The experience itself is priceless. Kuokkas are so adorable. Love them so much. But I still did see some young European backpackers touch them. I know they are cute, but your hands might carry bacterias, I don’t think its allowed to feed or touch the animal. Kuokkas are so friendly, they allow you to take photos up close. That’s enough no? No need to pick them up and pat like your cat. lol. Really beautiful island. Love it!

    The tour is great and worked well with ferry and bike rental. There was a pick up available, but it doesn't determine the pick up time correctly. In my case the ferry left Perth for Rottnest Island at 8:45 and pick up was confirmed for the same time. Had I waited for it, I would have missed the tour. Maybe someone can look into it.

    If you are planning to complete a round cycling of Rottnest Island, make sure your family are fit for that because you will need to cycle around the up and down hill with a distance of more than 10km. Obviously these 2 conditions didn't suit young children. I just did a short distant ride withcthe objective to find wild quokkas. We were lucky because it was easy to locate them as there was plenty of them. they are just everywhere. Everything was according to my expectation except the wheather. It was raining, but we still managed to enjoy the trip. View also very nice and I love it so much.

    Was such an amazing day. We rode 10.5km around the island. Stopped many time to take photos of the most breathtaking coastal views. But the best experience was the Quokkas. So cute and timid, they are everywhere in the cafe and shop area, there is also a very friendly peacock. The staff are really helpful and super friendly. You really will love it.

    First time to Rottnest Island - lived up to expectations from reviews. We were a family of 4 and hired bikes for the day - we made it around the island but didn't allow for no drink stations on the opposite side of the Island. Would recommend if you intend on going around the entire island that you carry enough water. Great day and would go again next time in the State of WA.

    beautiful weather, awesome scenery and quokkas, what more can you ask for. Had a great day exploring the island by bike and saw plenty of quokkas.

    Fantastic place with breathtaking sights. The snorkelling is excellent and the wildlife is wonderful. Enjoyed every minIt’s of it and the Quokkas are lovely.

    Rottness is a beautiful island and by having the bikes we were able to find a stunning empty beach . It was a great way to spend a birthday, and plenty of quokkas came out to say hello .
    I would highly recommend a trip to Rottness if you are visiting Perth or
    Freemantle .
