West End

Natural Attractions

West End is located on the western most Point of Rottnest Island. It is a rugged piece of coastline, which unlike the rest of the island is not so calm and peaceful. Here you can gaze across the Indian Ocean and view the magnificent waves forming, a paradise for surfers.

West End is renowned for scuba diving and for some shore fishing, but is not for the faint hearted, as this area has no protection from the elements of the ocean. Visitors can also view sea creatures in their natural habitat if they are lucky enough. Dolphins, whales and New Zealand fur seals are known to frequent the area and may come out to say hello, so make sure you have your camera ready.

West End is a long way from the main settlement area, so if you are not up for a lengthy bike ride, the Rottnest Island Discover Tour stops at this secluded location.
