Great value for money.
, Nov 2021
Touring the tunnels and gun turrets with a knowledge guide was fascinating. Our driver on the bus was terrific. Took us to places we would never had seen. Most interesting day.
Quokka Delight
, Feb 2020
Good day trip. We could’ve cycled but glad we didn’t as hot and hilly and younger people than us looked exhausted! Loved seeing the quokkas which was our main reason for visiting. Tour guide was knowledgeable and informative.
Great Trip to a Fantastic Location

Rottnest Ferries had great communication and everything went without a hitch. The morning tea was greatly appreciated, especially as we were there in plenty of time and it was nice to have somewhere cool to sit whilst waiting. A highlight for me was the train. The scenery and the many swallows foraging for food were wonderful and I very much enjoyed the tour of the tunnels. The highlights tour was very much that and is aimed to give you a flavour of what the island has to offer. The beaches all looked beautiful and so did wish I’d left some time to visit one but, if I do make it back to Perth, I would definitely spend nite time on the Island. However, this trip is a great way to catch a glimpse of the key things to see and do.
Great Tour

Very organised tour and didn’t have to worry about anything. Pick up location in Perth then about 30 minute drive to Hilarys boat harbour ferry where you are given your tickets and a free coffee/muffin voucher for cafe near ferry which was lovely (and a bottle of water). 45 minutes ferry ride to Rottnest. The aqua/teal water is stunning as you approach the island. The train has been closed due to major work needed on tracks so unfortunately had to catch the local bus to the gun tunnels and being a 42oC day on an unairconditioned bus was ridiculous but luckily it was a short trip (not tours fault). The tunnels were very interesting and provided some relief from the heat. Picked up in an Airconditioned bus this time for the bus tour. Had lunch (wrap, cake and drink - very nice) and met some gorgeous quokkas. Very good tour of the island with commentary and highly recommend as very big island and got to see all of it on the bus (hard slog if riding a bike in the heat). Had 3 stops; lookout, lighthouse, seals on rocks then back to main area shops for some souvenirs and lots of quokkas. Ferry back to boat harbour and bus to Perth. Wonderful tour especially if you want to be shown around and have everything organised for you. Small amount of walking and stairs near tunnels but optional. Great day despite the heat. Very friendly and helpful- I left my souvenirs on the ferry and the bus driver and ferry staff went above and beyond getting them back to me in Perth - thanks 😊
Rottnest Island day trip, get in before it’s spoiled by too many visitors
, Jan 2020
A beautiful Perth day our pick up arranged for a hotel about 1.5 Kilometres from our hotel. I maya telephone enquire about this in the prescribed up to 48 hours before departure and was told it was the best they could do and it was better than having to make our way the 20plus kilometres to Hillary’s. Very fly by the seat of your pants once on the ferry, no clear directions or staff who knew where we had to meet for our “grand island day tour”. Misdirected twice by staff, before finally finding the train station for pick up. Train ride up to Oliver Hill enjoyable, but no commentary and a well meaning tour guide who wasn’t really too concerned about numbers or people who hadn’t made it. We left volunteers escorted us around Oliver Hill and it was very interesting. Dealing with volunteers is great, but as volunteers there is the missing professionalism around time frames etc. once back on the train where we were handed our “lunch” a chicken salad wrap, no offer of water or a drink, also no serviettes or hand washing ability before eating, eaten on the journey back on the train. The onto a bus again a very lacks approach to who was on the bus we set off on our around island bus tour. One stop for photo opportunities and a commentary provided based upon the drivers own personal information , not scripted or recommended by the tour operator. Forget about the free time on the island we had about 11 minutes between leaving the bus tour and having to be back on the ferry for our return journey. A very full day of beautiful views but mis managed time. No desire to go back again
A day well spent

The day was organized well, from pickup at the hotel to return. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and the island has a lot to offer.
A perfect day

Can’t say more than it was a perfect day out and value for money great ree parking and a lovely coffee plus gorgeous muffin included. Light lunch was also great.
Rottnest Day Trip

Very good - enjoyed ferry from Hillary's Beach, then train to Oliver's Hill and Coach around perimeter of island. Had lunch at café, then spent time with delightful quokkas and their young. Only comment is that the Asian tourists seemed to want the little creatures for their own, taking very close photos and luring them with pieces of green seed pods. No-one else could get a look in!
Beautiful Island....

Day tour was very good, however we were told we had to walk for 30 minutes from main settlement to train station for tour of WW11 Gun Tower & Tunnels - one of our group was on 2walking sticks & they offered no transport for this section. Station not very well signposted. We did not realise we were doing a train ride & coach. Driver was well informed & the coach tour was great - beautiful scenery. Lunch was provided on train. One negative was that when we booked, there was no mention of cost being in US $ so ended up dearer & bank hit us with a conversion fee. Overall quite a lovely day.
Full Day Tour - no time to wander...
, Sep 2019
The first 2 hours were the military history tour which was really informative and interesting-we got information on the gun operation and exploring the tunnels it was really well setup. The volunteers who do the tour were great. We were disappointed to find out at lunch that we weren’t provided food for our son who was on an infant ticket-I didn’t realise we hadn’t been charged extra for the infant, I just paid what it said the cost was for 2 adults and an infant. I would have happily paid to have lunch provided for him or if it had been made clearer made sure to bring something for him especially as where we stopped for lunch didn’t seem to have anywhere convenient to buy anything. The afternoon portion of the trip seemed particularly rushed and I felt it would have been better to go a couple less places and spend more time there, but we did get to see a lot of the beauty of the island from the comfort of the bus.
