Rottamah Island

Rotamah Island: is a naturalist’s bushland delight. Clearly defined tracks offer some exceptional views with bird watching opportunities from the observatory.

It has a number of walking tracks that leave from the picnic area and jetty, one of which takes you over to the Ninety Mile Beach on a 45 minute walk through diverse landscapes to the pristine beach. Generally you won't see a soul at this beach making it a special place to visit for Bulls guests.

Getting there:

Rotamah Island has a narrow channel, so be sure to follow your Bulls map.
