Ngank Yira Bidi, Rottnest Island

Trail Alert

Some beach accesses along the Wadjemup Bidi have been impacted by the recent storm front, with the large swells and high tides causing significant beach erosion. Areas most notably affected are Strickland Bay and Armstrong Point. Directional signage at Marjorie Bay and Rocky Bay has also been damaged.

Temporary signage has been installed in these areas directing walkers to alternative roads until the beach sand returns naturally.


The Ngank Yira Bidi is a 9.4km walk on Rottnest Island,  an A- Class reserve,  situated just 18km off of the coast of Western Australia. The walk boasts impressive ocean, coastal and inland views. Interpretational signage compliments the trail; telling the underlying tales of Rottnest’s past, present and future.

Work hard play hard

The area seen here was home to the parade ground back in the days the army inhabited Rottnest Island. Alas, it was not all work in this area; the soldiers were allowed to play cricket on the parade ground too!
