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. Limited long-term parking available from $10 per day with Wilson Parking. 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.
B Shed Opening Hours:
Monday – Sunday 7:00am – 4:45pm
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.
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 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 – 4:30pm
Friday 8:30am – 5:45pm
Barrack Street Jetty is in a prime position on the Perth riverfront, next to the booming Elizabeth Quay tourist precinct.

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.
