Overview

Rottnest Express has been serving the Island for 50 years now and knows it better than most. If you’re a visitor to Perth, Rottnest is the must see destination and we’d love to take you there. If you’re a local and haven’t been to Rotto for a while — it’s time to rediscover Rotto — it’s easier than you think.

Hi Nicola163, Thanks for your review. We're glad to hear that you were able to make the journey without feeling sick. Seasickness is just awful so thankfully the 25 minute journey from Fremantle is so quick! We'll see you next time.

This was a very easy service to book and use, but I would make a few recommendations to those looking to head over to the island. Firstly, I travelled from Northpoint in Fremantle because it was significantly cheaper than any if the other departure locations,...More

Efficient booking system let’s do everything on line. We had some trouble getting the date and time we wanted as they had no bikes available on some sailings. We let that influence our date of travel which was a mistake. We should have gone on...More

Hi JD419, We're glad to hear that you found the website so easy to use. Unfortunately the daily ocean crossing does take a toll on our fleet of bikes so we do have to service the bikes very regularly. We hope to see you again...More

A quick transfer from freo to Rottnest, what else is there to expect really, prices are steep but then again running the ferry must cost them a fortune too.
