Rottnest Island, Western Australia

Beautiful beaches, pink sunsets at Pinkies Beach and top snorkelling – Rotto (Rottnest Island) is a summer fave.

A 45 minute ferry ride from Hillarys (or 25 minutes from Freo) will get you to Rotto.

We camping at the Campgrounds, which was behind Pinky’s Beach and close to the Basin (popular snorkelling hole).  This was a perfect spot for watching the pink sunsets at Pinky’s Beach.

Quokkas are the main inhabitants of this island and are super cute to observe.

Note: Do not touch or feed them – a classic tourist no-no.
