Disabled access

Rottnest Island provides an access and facility-friendly holiday destination for all visitors. With wide pathways, easy to read signage and ramps to most facilities Rottnest Island is easily accessible. There is also plenty of outdoor seating and numerous toilet facilities.

Wheelchairs and electric scooters (gophers) are available for hire and the Island has a wheelchair compatible shuttle bus for access to and from the ferries.

Disability Buggy
Rottnest Island offers a petrol powered golf cart for Island visitors permanently confined to a wheelchair in the company of a carer. Please note: this cart is not fitted with hand controls.

The cart is offered to provide an independent experience out on the Island reserve and is not for use within the Settlement area or for overnight use.

The buggy must be booked at least one week in advance of your visit to allow time for the driver/carer to apply for a permit to drive on Rottnest Island.

Please contact Rottnest Island Pedal & Flipper for bookings and additional information on 08 9292 5105.
