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 available for $10 per day and ‘The Express Lane’ fully licensed café are also available. Parking at B-shed can fill up fast in the busier months so we recommend planning ahead using the link below for alternative parking options.
Important notice: due to the Water Pipe project there is limited parking available at B-shed with various road closures that can potentially cause delays and diversions. We highly recommend arriving early or taking advantage of our FREE Northport parking. There are also significant road interruptions around the B shed area which will be on Peter Hugues drive ( front of Fremantle Ports ) and corner of Fleet and Philmore street. Parking at B-shed is currently half price until further advised and overflow parking is available at D-shed.
B Shed Opening Hours:
Saturday to Thursday 7:00am – 4:00pm
Friday 7:00am – 5:30pm
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. Plus from Saturday 6th June 2020, we are offering FREE parking for same day and extended stay parking at our Northport terminal.
Note that there’s no public transport to Northport and the Fremantle Port Authority doesn’t permit cycling in the Rous 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:
Saturday to Thursday 8:30am – 4:00pm
Friday 8:30am – 5:50pm
