The first new accommodation on Rottnest Island in over 30 years, Discovery Rottnest Island, is now officially open for bookings for stays from March 2019.

Nestled behind the dunes of Pinky Beach and Bathurst Lighthouse the new eco resort has 83 fully furnished tents.

There are three levels of accommodation connected via boardwalks to the resort pool and restaurant.


Pinky’s Beach Club is at the heart of the property and will be serving locally inspired dishes and cocktails to both resort guests, and other visitors to the island.

Discovery Rottnest Island Director Tim Crosland said Rottnest is a special place, and he knows accommodation can be hard to secure on the island.

“This new property adds to the number of rooms available, and offers an experience that hasn’t before been seen on the island.”
