A fun, environmentally friendly way to explore the island

Cycling on Wadjemup / Rottnest Island is more than a mode of transport, it’s a way of life. As a vehicle-restricted island, people love the switch from petrol to pedal power, enjoying a slowed down pace that’s not only good for their health but also the environment. 

Ideal for young children and families, experience that childlike joy and nostalgia as your own memories from your younger days start to return as you explore. 

Whether you bring your own wheels or hire a bike once you've arrived, you can pedal to every corner of the island or cruise along on an electric bike, enjoying stunning views and that salty sea air.
