HU PERTH - Rottnest Island visit

Is anyone interested in visiting and staying on Rottnest Island for a few days before the HU Perth meet?

The Rottnest Carnival is on 28th Sep which also marks the beginning of the school holidays - so I was thinking of going a few days beforehand - maybe 24th -29th.

There are some reasonably priced cabins which work out really cheap when you have 4-6 people sharing. (Camping is $35 per person per night so cabin could be cheaper.)

Any interest??

Hi Jax,

Been catching up on Postie Notes, and good to know you're good to go!! Enjoy the train to Perth when it comes around, and looking forward to reading more of your travels. ( don't think i'd like to be doing France on a postie bike at the moment it's pi**ing down-- tail end of hurricane bertha).

Hey John, the countdown has begun. I get the Indian Pacific from Sydney to Perth next Wednesday. 4 days of pure luxury!

The lovely people at the Rottnest Tourism Board have been kind enough to offer Linda* and I a bungalow and a bicycle each... so we are looking forward to some great new adventures in WA.

*Linda is also presenting at HU Perth.

New to Horizons Unlimited?

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
