A 30 minute ride on a speedy boat will get you from Fremantle Jetty to Rottnest Island. Fremantle is Perth's Habour town (also about 20 to 30 minutes away from Perth). Fremantle has a great café strip and restaurants, which offer delicious meals. In summer the atmosphere is wonderful. There are lots of people on the streets, sitting outside the cafes or visiting the Fremantle markets (fresh food growers, knick-knacks… also worth seeing) and street artists put on their shows...
