Located off the coast of Western Australia, Rottnest is a favourite location for many West Australians. At just 11km long the island is ideal to be explored on foot or by bike (available for hire on the island). The fastest way to get to Rottnest is via a ferry which operates from the Barrack St Jetty in the CBD, located only 5 minutes drive from the venue. A full day is recommended to appreciate all the island has to offer.

The lunar-like Pinnacles form one of Australia’s most unique and fascinating natural landscapes. Formed over millions of years, thousands of tall limestone spires rise eerily out of the yellow desert sands of Nambung National Park, just outside the coastal town of Cervantes.
Located two hours north of Perth, along Indian Ocean Drive, the Pinnacles and sand dunes of the Cervantes area are perfect for a day trip.
