“We are pleased to announce some major improvements to Rottnest Island accommodation booking with a new look and new name,” the website reads.
“The new Stay Rottnest website gives you access to the largest selection of options on the island including spacious self-contained units, campsites, hostels and dorms.
“You can easily search for island locations and check availability based on flexible travel dates.”
It’s a recent update considering previous tech glitches and crashes left travelers frustrated and unable to book.
In June, those looking for limited accommodation places for the end of the current summer were faced with an alert saying a “significant technical” situation was unfolding.
A similar problem caused the site to crash in April, a disaster for those planning to spend Christmas on the island off the coast of Perth.
In the 2018/19 financial year, the island, which is synonymous with quokkas, saw a record 785,000 visitors.
