Parker Point Rottnest Island

Parker Point Snorkel Trail

Rottnest Island

Directions - Parker Point is found on the south side of Rottnest Island on the Parker Point Loop road. Getting out there can be done by bike (head south from the main settlement and follow the signs past the airport) or if you are taking the Island Explorer Bus then get off at Stop #5, which is right near the lookout over the bay.

The Snorkel - With a fantastic first snorkel just around the corner at Little Salmon Bay, it was time to move on to the next underwater adventure for the day at Parker Point. Drying off and grabbing our bikes we left the now crowded beach at Little Salmon Bay and headed back up the hill to reach Parker Point. With a lovely sunny day the tourist numbers were just as high here, thanks to a postcard perfect scene overlooking the turquoise waters and a family of quokkas (including a little bubba quokka). We took a few shots of these iconic Rottnest locals with some very unsuccessful #quokkaselfie attempts by myself (I am no Roger Federer).
