Owner description: 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.

Ridiculously expensive for such a short journey. Once there it's a let down unless you get to the other side of the island from the ferry landing

Unless you have your own boat this is the only way to get to Rottnest by sea. It is certainly worth booking early and/or using vouchers as the prices are much lower and you don't get stung $2 per piece of baggage when booking close to departure. The new system of luggage delivery does seem to be better but by the time you get to the total payment and you add up your ticket, your luggage, your bikes and your parking ($10/day) it's a pricey exercise for a family. Also beware of the 22kg per piece limit - your esky full of food will weigh much more than that and you wont want to be carrying that to your cottage. I also noticed that any changes to our tickets "would incur a fee of $14 each" which I think is a bit rich.

The only way to get to Rottnest island ifyou don't have access to a private boat. Comfortable and you can take your bicycle if you want to to use it on the island.

Rottnest Island is just off the coast of Perth/Fremantle. The Island has world class beaches and there is always some that are sheltered from the prevailing wind of the day. A popular place for surfers, divers, fishermen. Very family friendly but also loved by the young crowd. To get there hop on the Rottnest Express...comfortable, quick trip across to the island.

Booking the tickets online was simple and boarding the early morning ferry was efficient and quick, even though it seemed very busy. The half hour journey passed quickly and disembarking was just as efficient. Took a few minutes to get our hire bikes allocated but they seemed to do it as quickly as they could so as not to keep you waiting around.
