There will be competition for the Rottnest Island swim next year when on March 19 the first PORT TO PUB SWIM will be held. Swimmers will leave from Leighton Beach near Bib&Tuckers and arrive at Thompson Bay near the hotel.
Up to 1,200 swimmers can take part in the community race with entry fees of $ 195 per person for teams of four to six people.
There will be two options, a 20km and a 25km swim, so get ready and start training.

I am not sure how prestigious the EXPERIENCE OZ survey is, but no matter how small, a win is always good, so congratulations to Rottnest Island for having been voted the top destination in Australia!
The top ten were:
1 Rottnest Island-2 Whitsundays-3 Margaret River-4 Gold Coast-5 Uluru-6 Cairns-7 Sunshine Coast-8 Barossa Valley- 9 Ningaloo Reef-10 Kangaroo Island.
One of the major complaints I hear in Fremantle about Rottnest is how expensive the Rottnest Express ferry is to get there. The $ 25 day ticket Carnivale special they had on the weekend attracted huge numbers, so they might want to do that more often. Tuesdays are half price days by the way!
