  • The basin is the popular swimming location at Rottnest island has a road and cycleway to the location with fresh water showers where you can swim snorkel and sunbake
  • A great place for Children & Adults to snorkel, swim & have some fun in the water or just take the sun in on the beach, grass area or under the shelter. There are toilet facilities & outdoor showers at "The Basin". It's only a short ride or walk from the Town centre.
  • Nice at sunset
