rottnest island local gives us hot tips for day and night

We are incredibly lucky to have the magical Rottnest Island in such proximity to Perth: crystal clear waters, adventure and escape — even if it’s just for a day. For photographer and director at Osprey Creative Ryan Chatfield, it’s home. Having lived on the island for five years and spending the last 22 years exploring it — Chatfield formed a chemistry and knowledge with and around the waters. We asked him for some expert advice, the consensus: play to the island’s strengths and you’ll have the time of your life.

RYAN’S FAVOURITE SPOTS

The West End / Fishhook Bay — day trip

Amazing for snorkelling and the perfect location to moor your boat for a day trip.

“I love the West End because it is raw and exposed, you experience the full brunt of the swells and weather; it’s still very natural down there,” Chatfield said.

Juxtaposed to that is the calm and protected Fishhook Bay which is picturesque and serene according to Chatfield.
