Discover Rottnest Bus Tour

See the spectacular sights of Wadjemup / Rottnest Island in air-conditioned comfort.

Discover an island that is unlike anywhere else you’ve ventured. Bus tours depart twice daily, visiting all the essential spots.

This spacious bus is one of the few vehicles permitted on the island and is a comfortable way to experience the beautiful scenery. During the 90-minute tour, you and your fellow travellers will visit the island’s most iconic locations. 

As the bus cruises along the winding roads of Wadjemup, take time to appreciate the visual feast the island presents. Insightful commentary along the journey will draw your attention to unique flora, fauna, history and culture.

The bus makes one stop at the rugged West End, where you can stretch your legs and soak up the expansive views over the Indian Ocean. The West End is a haven for unique wildlife, so you might even spot long-nosed fur seals and humpback whales (depending on the season).

Bus services depart daily at 11:20 am and 1:50 pm.

Times are subject to change due to weather conditions. For more information and to book, visit the Rottnest Express website.
