This is an ideal location to spend the whole day. Renting bikes if you are young or with kids is a must as it gives you access to the whole island. The scenery is breath taking and ideal to visit in summer or spring time....More

Hi, Rottnest certainly looks interesting! A few questions here, please help... Is it a good idea to go there in end July/ early August? Is the best means of transport by bike? What if I can't ride a bike? Is there an alternative? Thanks!
