Update: Rottnest Island Glamping: 5 Reasons to Stay at Discovery Rottnest

Reported back in September 2017, application to glamp Rottnest Island was approved.

Now on Friday, we are now a step closer glamping in Rottnest Island. Bookings for the highly-anticipated new eco-tent accommodation on Rottnest Island will open on Friday 26 October for stays from 1 March 2019.

To mark the occasion, an eco-tent will pop up at Elizabeth Quay in Perth for a week, to give locals the opportunity to check out what to expect at the beachside holiday accommodation.

The fully-furnished Discovery Rottnest Island tent, complete with ensuite, kitchenette & deck, will be available to explore from midday on Friday 26th October, the same time as accommodation goes on sale.

Known as Discovery Rottnest Island, the eco-tents and beach club will be nestled behind the dunes of Pinky Beach and Bathurst Lighthouse.
