  • Went on the underground tour. Excellent! John was a great guide too.
  • Great restoration.
  • In my youngest years I painted the gun. With olive green paint. And working in the bunker was fun. I reckon you should visit this site. Because there's a bit of historical value here 😀.
  • When me, my mum and little brother went to Rottnest Island, one of the things we did was go to the Oliver Hill Battery. We road on bikes that we rented to the bass of the hill where we parked our bikes and walked up the hill to the gun. While we waited for our tour to start I looked at the many World War II news clippings such as the Pearl Harbor Bombing. to what I learnt Fremantel was a in-portent harbor and Perth was under threat of a Japanese invasion and the gun was made to keep it safe. The gun is 3 stores. The bottom loaded shells while the top fired them. some of the tour was under ground and the stored shells their and had their dinning room there and many other things.
  • It is an amazing place with a long history

Where to stay in Rottnest Island

If you reserve early enough (some accommodations take bookings up to 18 months in advance), you'll be able to choose from boutique hotels and guesthouses, largely situated in the Thomson Bay area. Some camping grounds are also found on the island, allowing visitors to get a wilder perspective of the landscape. Most visitors come for the day before boarding the ferry back to Perth, which can take as little as 25 minutes.
