Rottnest Island is an A-Class Reserve located 18km off the coast of Fremantle & Perth. It contains remnant vegetation, has Marine Sanctuary zones and boasts many historical sites. Rottnest is also a popular holiday spot and is well known for its local inhabitants, the native Quokkas.

Come for an eco-holiday on this popular island and help to preserve this iconic spot by assisting in various activities, including fencing, planting, dune rehabilitation, green stock maintenance and seawall painting. These activities encourage the ongoing upkeep of this heritage effort, increase the success rate of previously planted coastal vegetation, enhance the biodiversity of flora species, prevent erosion and assist with the overall ecological health of the island ecosystem.
