Access to attractions and facilities
Within the Thomson Bay settlement there is ramp access to the Visitor Centre.
Wheelchair accessible toilets are located behind the Gift Shop, on Digby Drive near the shopping precinct, on Henderson Street, and also close to the Tearooms and Hotel Rottnest on Bedford Avenue.
Restaurants, cafes and bars
The Rottnest Tearooms and the Dome Cafe, situated in Thomson Bay with beautiful views back to Fremantle and Perth, cater for people with a mobility impairment. Access to the Tearooms is at the same level as the footpath and the Dome Cafe is accessed by a ramp from the footpath. The Hotel Rottnest beer garden is on street level, making it accessible for everyone. There is an access ramp to the Main Bar when entering through the main gates, Bedford Avenue.
Beach access and hire equipment
There is ocean access via a ramp into the water at Thomson Bay, north of the Visitor Centre. At Geordie and Longreach Bay there are steps leading down to the beach and no ramp. Beach access in general is difficult for people with mobility impairment, however the Authority is continually implementing planned improvements over time.
One beach wheelchair is available for hire from Rottnest Bike & Hire, so please contact +61 8 9292 5105.
