What makes Rottnest Diving unique?

Situated 19kms off the coast of Fremantle, Rottnest Island has had the unique opportunity of being isolated from the mainland for thousands of years, creating an opportunity for it's own unique species of flora, fauna and marine life to thrive, which can only found around the island.

Rating only second to Shark Bay, Rottnest has twenty different species of coral and nine different species of seagrasses, home to over 400 species of fish; making it one of the most diverse temperate marine ecosystems in Western Australia.

Even though Rottnest Island sits within a temperate region, it's other unique quality is being nestled in the Leeuwin Current.

The Leeuwin Current

A southerly flowing current that runs from the northern tropics of Western Australia from Cape Leeuwin, down along the south coast of western Australia, bringing with it warm waters and migrational sea life.

The Leeuwin's warmer waters bring an abundance of temperate and sub-tropical marine marine life, making it one of the most diverse marine ecosystems in the South West.
