Fishing is completely prohibited in some sanctuary zones

Any fishing, spear-fishing, or collecting of marine plant life is strictly prohibited unless otherwise noted. When boating, leaving your location as you found it helps to maintain the health of the surrounding waters.

Works and service improvements are conducted periodically across Rottnest Island

A range of projects are also currently underway to refresh and revitalise Rottnest Island facilities. These works aim to enhance the visitor experience and to preserve the island long term.
