ARRIVAL INFORMATION

We look forward to welcoming you to Rottnest Island and hope the following information will assist to make your holiday carefree. 

TRAVELLING TO ROTTNEST

Transfers across to Rottnest Island can be booked through one of the two ferry operators. The ferry operators will provide luggage labels that will include both your onward and return information.

If you book your passage more than seven days in advance the ferry operator will send your luggage labels to your nominated address. Alternatively, if you book within seven days of departure you will receive labels at the ferry terminal and an additional charge will be incurred.

If your return date changes during your stay, as long as you advise your ferry operator and your destination does not change, your return labels are still valid. Alternatively replacement labels can be obtained from the Visitor Centre on the island.
