Fodor's Review

At the Thomson Bay settlement, don't miss the Rottnest Museum, which includes mementos of the island's turbulent past. Staying true to local history, displays are housed in an old mill and haystore built in 1857, showing local geology, natural and social history, and maritime lore with a bunch of surprising facts. It's open daily 10:45–3:30. Wadjemup Lighthouse Tours —find out what goes on within the confines of a working lighthouse and climb to the top of this Heritage structure for fabulous 360-degree views.Tours depart daily, on demand, at 11 am and every half hour until 2:30 pm, and cost A$8.
