Summer School Holidays: 15 December 2023 to 30 January 2024

There are endless ways to burn off the school holiday energy at Rottnest Island and there’s no better place to start than by exploring the incredible beaches and bays.

Hire a bike from Pedal & Flipper Hire and tour the island’s cycle paths and roads past stunning scenery. But if riding a bike isn’t your thing, you can't beat a tour on a revolutionary set of wheels with Segway Tours WA (suitable for kids over the age of 12).

See the island from a different perspective by hopping on one of bus tours with Quokka Coaches and Rottnest Express to help you explore the island from the comfort of a bus. Or enjoy the island at your own pace with the Island Explorer hop-on-hop-off bus.

If the kids love sports and are keen to go on adventure, MBA Rottnest offers an all-inclusive kids club program in a safe and relaxed environment for kids to explore history and play sport on Rottnest Island.

For a cultural experience, head to the Wadjemup Museum for Children for an educational adventure or Wadjemup Museum to explore the island’s history. While you’re there, check out the latest exhibition Surf’s Up Wadjemup featuring an indoor surfboard for visitors to feel the thrill of a wave - a perfect opportunity for a photo as a memento to take home with you.

Kids can also fill their days with mini-golf and retro arcade games as well as catching one of the latest new release movies at Rottnest Movies and Mini Golf or roll up for a few rounds of barefoot lawn bowls the whole family will enjoy.
