Rottnest Island continues to welcome a record number of visitors to its shores, with visitors flocking to Western Australia’s island paradise.

The WA Government’s active support and promotion of Rottnest Island since taking office in March 2017 has led to a massive growth in visitor numbers.

New figures show a four per cent increase in visitor numbers over the summer, improving on 2017-18’s record-breaking summer season.

The island’s growing appeal is underscored by additional activities for visitors, extra ferry services, successful marketing campaigns, celebrity visitors and quokka selfies.

The Rottnest Island Authority is preparing for a busy autumn season, with 2019’s April school holidays including the Easter public holidays and the island’s Anzac Day dawn service.
