Are you looking for the best things to do with your kids on Rottnest Island? Look no further.
Just 19 kilometres off the coast of Perth and only a 30-minute ferry from Fremantle lies the sunny Rottnest Island. The holiday island lures tourists with its casual atmosphere, picture-perfect beaches and stunning snorkelling spots.
One of the main attractions on the 19-square-kilometre isle are the ‘rats’. Well, not rats but quokkas. Back in 1696, Dutch explorer, Willem de Vlamingh mistook the cute little island critters as rats. He aptly named the island Rottnest – which translates literally to ‘rat’s nest’. One of the main attractions on the island today is snapping a photo alongside a quokka. You’ll find that on our list along with a bunch of our other favourite things to do with the kids on Rottnest Island.
