Surrounded by an A-class reserve, 63 sparkling beaches and 20 bays, dramatic seascapes and rich layers of cultural heritage, Rottnest Island is not only Western Australia’s favourite island getaway, it’s also an iconic venue for your next function.
Each year, the island plays host to more than 48 events, from sports, cultural celebrations and musical performances to weddings, corporate events, and team-building activities.
The unique island setting, combined with a choice of meeting and conference facilities, accommodation and excellent dining locations, makes Rottnest Island a destination of choice. Equally, its secluded bays and beaches, along with its unique heritage buildings, such as the lighthouses, create stunning backdrops for bridal parties and outdoor catered events.
The events team offers a range of services, from simply setting up a beach wedding to arranging a fully catered cocktail party. With a limited vehicle policy on the island, visitors will feel relaxed, and far away from the hustle-and-bustle of their everyday lives. But this doesn’t mean they have to ride a pushbike to get from A to B. Rottnest Island is able to service groups and functions with a small fleet of private buses, private electric leaf cars, and golf buggies.
The island also caters for a wide range of interests, with a diverse range of activities and attractions including guided bus and walking tours, golf course/country club, Segway adventure tours, cinema, lighthouses and military tours, museum and historical buildings, private boating facilities, walking trails, hire of bikes and beach accessories, and more. The island’s two brand-new couples’ retreat units are also perfect for wedding parties and honeymoon holidays.
