However, please be aware that there are Rottnest Island Authority regulations regarding flora, fauna and time curfews that must be followed. Our friendly team is more than happy to provide guidance on these rules.

Any amendments are subject to availability and agreement with Samphire Rottnest and may incur additional fees and charges.
