As stated by Tourism Minister Paul Papalia:

“Rottnest Island, with its abundance of marine wildlife and natural wonders, is the perfect location to stage a seafood event.

“There is something for everyone at Seafood Saturday, with unique seafood events, gourmet food and wine, stories by the beach bonfire and a range of activities for the family.

“Following the success of last season’s new and varied offerings, Seafood Saturday is creating an opportunity for visitors to experience the island like never before.

“If you haven’t been to Rottnest Island, or haven’t been in a while, I encourage you to get your family and friends tickets.”
