Rothwood is located 9 km's from Perth International airport and a few km's more to the domestic airport which makes it an ideal location for traveler's needing a good nights rest before commencing their journeys either into our great state or to other destinations around the globe.
Perth's Crown casino, the new football stadium and city centre is only 20 minutes away by car and can be reached fairly simply by traveling straight along one major road. Our proximity to Tonkin (.5 km) and Roe (2km's) highways make traveling up North or down to our South West really accessible and will save you precious time on your forwarding journey.
We are at the base of Perth's hills with the town of Kalamuda and Lesmurdie falls only a short trip up the road. There is also a local Perth transport bus stop (50m's) at the front of our property which can take you into Perth or to the afore mentioned Kalamunda.
Rothwood as a venue
At Rothwood we are much more than just a B&B. With all of our fantastic facilities we see Rothwood as an ideal location for business'es to rent the whole property for corporate events, entertaining, team building weekends or even that Christmas party with a difference. It's also a great location for family gatherings, anniversaries, birthdays or of course that special romantic weekend away.
With the Balinese gazebo set slightly higher than the big deck area it makes for a great wedding venue. Of course, this is all subject to availability so be sure to call and book early to avoid disappointment!
Of course we want all of our guests to enjoy their time at Rothwood but we make clear now this is not a party house and strictly no schoolies or unruly people need apply. Thank you, for your understanding in this matter.
