The western-most point of Rottnest Island, dolphins are frequently to be seen passing by Cape Vlamingh.

Details

Description

Interestingly, the nearest landmass is Madagascar, many thousands of kilmetres across the ocean. Cape Vlamingh is an exposed area, and the Cape Vlamingh Heritage Trail provides walkers with excellent views over the Cape and surrounding waters. 

The Cape gets its name from Dutch explorer William de Vlamingh, who, upon discovering the Island, believed the resident Quokkas to be rats.
