These lakes are permanent and are always accessible all year around, other notable lakes that may dry up throughout the summer period include Pink Lake, Lake Sirius, Lake Negri and the twin Pearse Lakes.

      My type of tour, quick, full of information, driving slowly by, in the bus, a lot of little things to see and stopping only at the main attractions eg: the tunnels and war gun and the lighthouse. Tour guide , Bob, was full of information about the island, the places we passed, but didn’t stop at, he also had a story to tell about them, he made the trip interesting. Unfortunately we didn’t get the train ride as it had broken down which meant we did that part of the tour in the bus also. Lunch was a chicken wrap, cookie and water and a selfie with a quokka!

      My ferry to Rottnest arrived late to start the tour, but the staff and tour guide made sure I missed as little as possible and made the trip well worth it.

      Nine friends all seniors really enjoyed this tour. A train ride, a tour of the tunnels, and a fantastic drive around the whole island, stopping at many scenic spots along the way. We spotted whales, dolphins, and New Zealand fur seals.

      This was a great tour.
      The bus leaves from behind Dome and we had a lovely small group on that day. The highlights were the beautiful beaches we stopped at along the way, seal watching and the ride on the old train - I even got to be the train driver!
      Lots of fun and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

      It was an enjoyable day. Parts like the tour of the gun tunnels were a bit boring and lunch was very average but the beaches were really beautiful.
