Kingstown is located 1km south of the Thomson Bay Main Jetty and was a focal point in Rottnest Islands WWII operations as it housed the Australian Army during wartime operations.
Kingstown Barracks accommodation was opened for educational use in 1984/1985 and has become a much loved camp destination for many WA schools.
The accomodation features 17 dormitory rooms, ideal for school and other group travel, it is also a favourite for backpackers given the very affordable pricing.
Some rooms have private toilet and wheelchair facilities. Communal toilet facilities are available.
