The beaches on Rottnest Island are really pristine with crystal clear waters...great for a relaxing weekend..There also is great fishing here for the ardent angler...The beaches are many and some secluded..There is no cars allowed on Rottnest only local service vehicles..There is a bus that runs around the Island ..a "hop on hop off " regular service..Bicycles are the mode of transport here and can be hired when arriving..
Originally built in the 1840's as a penal settlement the Historical buildings in Thompson Bay today are National Trust and are to be admired as everything that was needed to build these structures was aquired on the Island..and they stand today as testiment to the hard labour and remain largely as they did when constructed in wonderful condition.
