Rottnest Island, Western Australia’s holiday paradise, is a haven for tourists, with 63 sparkling bays and beaches, dramatic seascapes, multiple landscapes and rich layers of cultural heritage. The island is situated just 20-minute ferry ride from Fremantle, with clear views to the Perth city skyline from Thomson Bay settlement, reinforcing the feeling of being so close, and yet a world away from the day-to-day bustle of city life.
With its close proximity, stunning beaches and unique heritage, Rottnest is great for corporate events, team building, workshops, weddings, school camps and retreat-style conferences. The remarkable setting, combined with its meeting and conference facilities, accommodation and excellent dining locations, makes Rottnest Island an ideal destination. The secluded bays and beaches, and singular heritage buildings (such as the Lighthouses), create incredible backdrops for bridal parties and outdoor catered events.
A range of venues is available for weddings and conferences, each boasting its own style and facilities. From Aristos Waterfront Restaurant, Hotel Rottnest and Rottnest Lodge to the historical Picture Hall and Peacock Inn at the Kingstown Barracks, there is no shortage of choices.
For wedding ceremonies, outdoor and indoor options are available (including a chapel and church), as well as many beach areas.
Although the island has a no-vehicles policy, it is able to provide a small fleet of charter buses, private electric LEAF cars and golf buggies.
Guests at your function will never be lost for things to do, with the island offering a diverse range of activities and attractions. Its talented events team is able to tailor activities and tours to suit the needs of individual groups, making the most of this wonderful destination.
