Hiking the Wadjemup Bidi

Every step tells a story

See the island from a new perspective and reconnect with nature on the Wadjemup Bidi. This incredible series of walk trails take in the spectacular coastal headlands, stunning inland lakes and breathtaking vistas of Wadjemup / Rottnest Island. 

Spanning 45 km and threading its way through the island, the Bidi — which means "trail" or "track" in Noongar — is made up of five sections. Each unique stretch displays culturally and environmentally significant landmarks, providing balanced opportunity for historical reflection and celebration of the island’s natural beauty.

Choose from 5 different trails or do them all

With the entire Wadjemup Bidi covering 45 km, you’ll need to spread your hike over a few days if you want to do the whole thing.

For those wanting to explore at their own pace, the Wadjemup Bidi is made up of five connected trails allowing you to traverse the island in separate stages.

Once you’re armed with an island map — which you can pick up from the Visitor Centre — and plenty of water, all that’s left is to choose the trail you want to explore first.
