City of York Bay

Protected from prevailing winds with a 300m long sandy beach and shallow waters, City of York Bay offers a highly desirable location for a satellite campground along the recently developed Wadjemup Bidi walk trail.

Project description

The project is designed to provide enhanced visitor experiences and further reveal the natural attractions and heritage features of the bay, as well as enable future tourism opportunities. 

The Rottnest Island Master Plan (20 Year Vision) identifies a location for a low-impact ecotourism venture at the bay with the aim to diversify and add to the Island’s accommodation offerings.

Options are currently being explored for future facilities that will accommodate low impact, overnight camping.

Project key features

Key elements of the project may include:

  • Boardwalks raised above the natural landscape, and
  • Enhanced facilities including shelters and seating.

Estimated project completion

Stage 1 > May 2021
Stage 2 > April 2021
