For day-trippers and passengers coming from south of the Swan River, B Shed is the most convenient Rottnest Island departure point. It’s also super-close to Fremantle train station, so if you’re arriving via public transport you’ll be just a short walk from your ferry. Limited long-term parking and ‘The Express Lane’ fully licensed café are also available.
B Shed Opening Hours:
Monday – Sunday: 6:45am – 5:15pm
Convenient Northport is the locals’ departure point of choice, with 400-plus secure car parks at reasonable daily rates, plus drive-up luggage drop and a fully licensed kiosk. If you’ll be arriving under your own steam, Northport is for you.
Note that there’s no public transport to Northport and the Fremantle Port Authority doesn’t permit cycling in the Rouse Head precinct (there’s no safe cycle lane). Cyclists should ride and/or catch the train to B Shed at Victoria Quay instead.
Northport Opening Hours:
Monday – Sunday: 8:30am – 5:00pm
Barrack Street Jetty is in a prime position on the Perth riverfront, next to the booming Elizabeth Quay tourist precinct. Rottnest Express staff are on hand to help you make the most of your visit to Perth and Rottnest, as you sidestep Perth’s traffic and enjoy a picturesque Swan River cruise en route to the island. Parking can be tight in downtown Perth, but public transport is nearby – both the Elizabeth Quay train station and the Barrack Street Jetty stop on the free Blue CAT bus line. A free city hotel pickup service is also available.
