*Please Note: That the B Shed terminal is currently under renovations, and we are operating out of an office on the E Shed side of Peter Hughes Drive. Due to the summer period parking will be extremely busy in and around our Fremantle terminal, we encourage you to leave plenty of time to find appropriate parking or alternatively travel out of our Northport terminal in Rous Head for ample parking options.
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 close to Fremantle train station, so if you’re arriving via public transport you’ll be just a short walk from your ferry. Very limited long-term parking is available from $10 per day with Wilson Parking.
Fremantle (B Shed) Opening Hours:
Monday – Sunday 7:00am – 4:00pm
Convenient Northport is the locals’ departure point of choice, with 400-plus easily accessible car parks for daily and overnight parking. Plus drive-up luggage drop and a fully licensed kiosk. If you’ll be arriving under your own steam, Northport is for you.
How does it work? Parking can no longer be pre-purchased so simply turn up on the day to purchase your parking ticket through the parking machines in the carpark at the Fremantle (Northport) terminal. Carpark remains open until 15 minutes after the last service arrives at Northport each day.
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.

The Rottnest Express Ferry has several parking options available. The most convenient parking option is the dedicated car park located at B-Shed in Fremantle, which is the departure point for the Rottnest Express Ferry. Alternatively, there are several public car parks located within walking distance of the B-Shed, such as the Wilson Parking on Victoria Quay and the City of Fremantle’s Parry Street car park. It is important to note that parking availability can be limited during peak periods, so it is recommended to arrive early or consider using public transport.
The Rottnest Express ferry leaves from several locations in Western Australia, including Fremantle (from two locations) and Perth City. The exact departure point depends on the chosen departure location.
B Shed is located in Fremantle, Western Australia. It is situated on Victoria Quay, adjacent to the Fremantle Passenger Terminal.
