Rottnest Express is Rottnest Island’s largest and most experienced cruise company, operating daily year-round ferry services from Perth and Fremantle.
Welcome to Rottnest Express
The fastest way to get to Rotto
Just like the name suggests, Rottnest Express is the fastest way to get to Rotto. We pick up passengers from three key terminals: the Barrack Street jetty in Perth, and from the more southern B-Shed and Northport terminals in Fremantle. Passengers embarking at Barrack Street are treated to a beautiful journey down the Swan River, before arriving in Fremantle (at either B-Shed or Northport). The Rottnest Express ferry then heads straight out into the Indian Ocean, bearing on the horizon towards Rottnest Island. In under an hour our passengers are on dry land, ready to begin their Rottnest adventure.
More ferries, better deals
We have more ferries to Rottnest operating than anyone else, which means we offer you a more frequent and convenient schedule. Because of this, we can also offer you the best deals on ferry rides, bike hire, island tours, accommodation and more.
Great value deals every day, all year round
Rottnest is busiest in summer and over school holidays, but these are not the only times you can find a great deal on a trip to Rottnest. Thanks to the beautiful Mediterranean climate that Perth experiences, Rottnest Island is accessible all year round, with each season offering its own unique attractions, so Rottnest Express offer great deals all year round too. In fact, you can find a great deal every day.
A caring member of the community
We feel very strongly about contributing to the tight-knit community that exists in Western Australia, and Rottnest Express is involved in a variety of charity work.
Teaming up with the Rottnest Island Authority, Rottnest Express is proud to offer our Telethon Tuesdays deal, where $1 from every person who travels to Rottnest on Tuesdays is donated to the Telethon Appeal (a long-standing charity in Western Australia dedicated to raising funds to improve the lives of children and young people).
