Salmon Bay

Natural Attractions

Located on the southern part of Rottnest Island, Salmon Bay boasts a lovely stretch of coastline, comprising white sandy shores and crystal clear water, sure to take anyone’s breath away.

You can now walk to Salmon Bay along the Wadjemup Bidi, a series of walk trails that will take you across spectacular coastal headlands, past stunning inland lakes and man-made attractions along the way. To visit Salmon Bay, head on the Wardan Nara Bidi section of the Wadjemup Bidi (10 kilometres one way/approximately 3-4 hours). The trail takes you along the coast of Salmon Bay and through to the middle of the Island to explore the World War 2 (WWII) guns and tunnels.

The Wardan Nara Bidi was proudly supported by the Rottnest Foundation working in partnership with BHP Billiton.

Salmon Bay is the perfect spot to take a dip after a long hard day of trekking through the island. Suitable for swimmers of all ages, the average temperature of the water is between 18 to 23 degrees.
