The safety, health and well-being of both our guests and teams remain our number one priority. As a result, Rottnest Express has continued to closely monitor the developments and advice provided around COVID-19.
Following further advice received, together with new restrictions initiated by the Western Australian Government (including restrictions on non-essential travel and activities and impending use of Rottnest Island as required by the government), we have announced the temporary suspension of all Rottnest Express journeys and tours.
At this stage, Rottnest Express services will be suspended until 31 May 2020 and we will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves. Our island commuter services will continue to run at a limited frequency as an essential service for authorised personnel.
We recognise that this will be incredibly disappointing news for guests booked to travel between now and 31 May, but we trust you will understand our decision.
All guests with travel booked through to 31 May 2020 will be provided with a credit to the value of 110% of their original booking and our team will assist them to re-book their travel for a later date, up to 31 December 2022.
We thank you for your understanding and look forward to being able to welcome you onboard when our services recommence.
We are experiencing high contact volumes and prioritising guests booked for travel in the next 24 hours. If you are booked outside of this period, we ask that you please wait to hear from us regarding booking updates.
If you booked through a travel agent or third-party website, please contact them directly
Possible light rain this afternoon and evening.
