My fascination for the ocean begun in Perth, it’s where I was born. Rottnest Island is an island just offshore from Perth. It’s actually the main reason why Perth city doesn’t have great waves as it acts as a swell barrier for the city. This is why you need to drive down south (Margs) or north (Kalbarri) to score. Rotto though, as an island, is a little gem. No cars allowed, a pub on the sand, a Red Rooster, 1 general store…and an endless supply of pristine beaches and bays, no matter what wind is blowing. For this reason, Rotto is the no.1 tourist destination in WA.
I spent my childhood on this island. Most Perth kids did. I enjoyed returning, even if hovering at 1000 feet to shoot these shots.
Last time I was here the waves were pumping (south side of the island), see this post. This time, no waves and a howling sea breeze (but still very nice on the north side of the island)
