Port to Pub News


Three more sleeps! You will be so excited/nervous, and getting up so early, that you probably won’t sleep much Friday night - so you will be taking part in the Port to Pub before you know it!

Make sure you are prepared for any weather and ocean conditions, and for a longer-than-expected swim. Then, on the day, when it’s beautiful weather, calm conditions, and you get there in sub 5 hours, you will have even more reason to celebrate at the Hotel Rottnest.
