When on the island, a must do activity is to explore the many salt lakes that occupy approximately 10 per cent of the area.

These lakes are permanent and are always accessible all year around, other notable lakes that may dry up throughout the summer period include Pink Lake, Lake Sirius, Lake Negri and the twin Pearse Lakes. These salt lake are known to turn pink as a result of the interaction between the algae and salt that grows in the water.

It was an enjoyable day. Parts like the tour of the gun tunnels were a bit boring and lunch was very average but the beaches were really beautiful.
Lovely Tour guide for Grande Rottnest Tour. Lovely lunch provided, which made it good value .Boat trip too expensive in my opinion.The train ride was cancelled which was nt really compensated.
Out standing! A beautiful Island, our guide was very informative
