Our ferry is sailing on the Swan River.   Leaving the dock at Perth, we travel under this bridge.   Cars and trains drive on this bridge above us.

There are no cars on Rottnest Island, so many humans ride bicycles.   We are bringing a lot of bikes on our ferry.

There is lots of information at the Visitor’s Center.   Here we learn about a tourist bus that travels around the island.   We bought our tickets and we are going.   We can get off if we want and then get the next bus an hour later.   This island has beautiful white sandy beaches.

The water is beautiful shades of blue.   This is the Indian Ocean.

Some people got off our bus to tour and climb the lighthouse.

Although Rottnest Island has white sand beaches with beautiful clear water the interior of the island is wooded.
