One day itinerary for little wanderers
Keeping inquisitive little minds engaged is an easy task here, where sources of inspiration and education are endless. Keep an ear out for that ever-rewarding ‘wow’ – it won’t be far away on a Wadjemup / Rottnest Island family trip.
9 am Mini Cycle
11 am Wadjemup Museum for Children
12 noon pit stop
It’s time to stop for lunch, a much-needed moment of leisure and indulgence to refuel for the afternoon adventures. With a full menu of Italian-inspired adult favourites and a fantastic kids’ menu, Frankie’s on Rotto is one option that’s sure to keep everyone happy. Dome Cafe is another family-friendly spot to visit, with comforting menu classics that will keep even the fussiest eaters happy.
1 pm Family Fun Park
Begin the afternoon at the Rottnest Island Movies & Mini Golf, where you can challenge each other to a game of mini golf. The course is 18 holes and set in amongst native flora and fauna. If the weather turns, a series of arcade games awaits indoors to deliver a hit of nostalgia for the more mature members of the family. Shoot some hoops, throw down a clown, or spin the Big Bass Wheel for a chance to win a prize.
As you head back into the town centre, make a pit stop at Simmo’s Rottnest Island for a sweet afternoon energiser. Because no family day out is complete without a scoop or two of everyone’s favourite seaside treat, no matter the temperature.
2:30 pm guided Rottnest Island quokka tour
If you visit in August, you’ll see the quokkas’ own inquisitive little joeys taking their first peek at the world from the safety of mum’s pouch. And in September, there’s the annual Quokka Birthday event!
While witnessing a quokka joey’s first days is a breathtaking experience, it’s important to be respectful. Always stay at a distance and quietly watch their interactions without involvement.
With a little extra time, you can have the full experience at Rottnest Island Movies & Mini Golf. Stay after your round of games and settle in for a showing of the latest blockbuster at the Picture Hall, where retro deckchairs and homemade choc bombs create a unique, nostalgic evening.
