1. Rottnest Island
Rottnest Island is located 18km off the Western Australian coast and should be on the top of anyone’s list of things to do in Perth.

With picturesque beaches, astounding marine life and some of the most beautiful scenery you will ever experience, Rottnest Island tops the list of things to do in Perth. While you’re there make sure that you hire a bike (as no cars are allowed on Rottnest) so that you can explore the island at your own pace and you may even be lucky enough to see one of the island's most famous inhabitants - the quokka!
