Rottnest Voluntary Guides School Holiday Program

Every school holidays, the Rottnest Voluntary Guides Association offer a program of activities and tours that will get kids out learning more about Rottnest Island’s natural environment, iconic wildlife and local history.

To see what’s on offer these school holidays,  download the program here. 

Keen to make the most of the picturesque beaches while staying (mostly) dry? Hop on an adventure boat tour with Eco Express (suitable for kids over the age of 4).

For more land-based adventures, you can't beat a tour on a revolutionary set of wheels with Segway Tours WA (suitable for kids over the age of 12).

For a slower pace, you can also take the family on a stroll along a section of the Wadjemup Bidi - the network of walk trails traversing the island, taking in beautiful landmarks and offering insights through interpretive signage along the way.

Kids can also fill their days with mini-golf or retro arcade games, a few rounds of barefoot lawn bowls, or even catching one of the latest new release movies at the historic Picture Hall.

For an insightful look through Rottnest Island’s rich history, take a walk around Wadjemup Museum. Discover a range of exhibits including 40,000-year-old artefacts, whale bones and even the original lighthouse keeper’s jacket.

Where to find school holiday activities

School holiday activities can be found around the island, including in the main settlement area.
