We had an enjoyable experience around Rottnest Island via bicycling
We had an enjoyable experience around Rottnest Island via bicycling, the bays & beaches were stunning and the wildlife amazing. The cycle paths and roads were kept in good condition with only a few spots where sand was covering about half the path/road making it dangerous for cyclists due to slipping hazards. The lack of water stations were a concern, particularly when it is a hot day, there should be at minimum a cold water fountain at each bay. Food and drinks were definitely overpriced with a glass of soft drink costing $9 compared with a schooner of beer at $10. Wasn't impressed with having to pay an additional landing fee on top of ticketing price. If you look at holiday prices to Bali, you would definitely get more bang for your buck by spending a week there. Western Australia in particular need to seriously consider the rising cost of living with minimal to no rise in salaries as it is straining families and holiday makers which isn't good for tourism.
