Tour Description

Still preserved to this day, Rottnest's WWII-era guns and tunnels stand as a stoic reminder of a pivotal moment in time. Join us aboard the Captain Hussey for a scenic train ride to picturesque Oliver Hill, as we take you on a guided tour of Rottnest's military history.

Situated just 18km west of the state capital of Perth, Rottnest Island was key in the line of defence of Western Australia during WWII. Most famously, Rottnest was home to a series of intricate, secret tunnels, and housed giant 9.2” guns as a defensive measure against any invading Axis forces.

These military artefacts are part of the rich and diverse timeline of Rottnest Island, which spans all of white settlement in Western Australia, and further back tens of thousands with indigenous culture.

Oliver Hill Train and Guns and Tunnels Tour (90 minute tour)
Departing from the Settlement Railway Station this tour travels on the 'Captain Hussey' Train to picturesque Oliver Hill for a guided tour of the massive 9.2 inch diameter gun and tunnel system that forms part of Rottnest's significant military heritage. The tour includes an underground tour of the battery.
