Nicholas Evenett 1 year ago We arranged the pick up for the early morning ferry the pickup locations in the early morning were limited but as it’s CBD nothings too far. We got to the harbour in good time, the check in was swift and I could rent bikes at check-in for just $ 20! The boat road was smooth the ferry has everything you need (including beer for sale on your return trip). The island is so beautiful and snorkelling was fantastic we bought our own snorkels so I can’t review that but the bikes had no issue. It was such an amazing day out and a real can’t miss while you're in Perth!

I had a great experience with the service of Experience Oz and enjoyed the island

I had a great experience with the service of Experience Oz and enjoyed the island. The only thing is the returning free bus service made me quite sad as they did not wait for us we have to stay at Quay for another 2 hours. Other than this I am quite happy!

There is so much to see and do on Rottnest Island, so we suggest choosing a ferry and tour option so you can make the most out of your visit to this spectacular island.

Rottnest Island Ferry Transfer Review

Benn Tudor

Perth Experience Expert

Rottnest Island is one of the best holiday destinations away from Perth for both locals and visitors alike. I recently visited Rottnest Island with a return ferry transfer with Rottnest Fast Ferries.

With my ticket in hand, I made my way to Hillarys Boat Harbour to climb aboard the spacious vessel and begin my journey over to Rotto.

How to get there

By transfer: This ferry option includes hotel transfers from a number of hotels in Perth CBD.

By car: You can drive yourself to Hillarys Boat Harbour, which is just 25-minutes away from Perth.

By bus & train: Depending on where you are travelling from, you'll be able to catch a public bus or train.

Highlights

  • Scenic journey over to Rottnest
  • The whole day to explore the island
  • Multiple departure times from the mainland
  • Relaxing journey
  • Friendly staff
  • Great day trip

What you’ll do

Depart the mainland

Rottnest Fast Ferries Western Australia Benn Tudor Review

Your trip will begin at Hillarys Boat Harbour where the ferry departs. The harbour is located around 25 minutes northwest of Perth CBD and is easily reached by car or train and bus from both Fremantle and Perth.

However, this ferry includes hotel transfers from a number of hotels in the Perth city centre, which is great if you don't have access to a car nor do you want to navigate your way around the public transport system.

As you’re boarding, the crew will hoist your bikes onto the deck and scan your ticket so if you're wanting to explore the island by bike you'll be able to get your gear over quite easily.

Once on board, you’ll notice the majority of seating is inside but there are two sections outside. If you’re like me, you’d much rather be out in the fresh air, enjoying the best of the view.

Cruise over to Rottnest

Rottnest Fast Ferries Western Australia Benn Tudor Review

Luckily for us, the swell for the day was moderate so the ride was pretty smooth. My number one tip would be to make sure you check the forecast so that if there are large swells you can prepare yourself and take seasickness tablets beforehand.

The ride over to the island went by quickly and I’d say it was approximately 45 to 55 minutes – not too long if you have small children. I spent the ferry ride watching the waves, listening to my music and searching for whales and dolphins. I have seen sea life on past trips over to Rottnest Island so I’d recommend you keep your eyes peeled just in case!

Arrive & explore

Once we arrived at the Thompson Bay Jetty, I alighted the ferry and was ready to explore the island after a quick visit to the Info Centre. If you're a first time visitor to Rottnest Island you'll want to visit the Information Centre before you begin exploring to ensure you don't miss out on any of the key attractions.

What’s included

  • Return ferry transfers from Hillarys Boat Harbour
  • Hotel transfers from Perth CBD accommodation

What to bring

  • Money for admission fee
  • Food if you wish to BYO lunch for your time on the island
  • Money for the shops & cafes
  • Swimwear & towel
  • Sun protection (ie. hats & sunscreen)

My Recommendations

This ferry transfer includes hotel transfers from all major hotels in Perth, which is great, however, the Rottnest Island admission fee is not included in the price and all passengers are required to pay on arrival.

Overall, the ferry was a comfortable and efficient segue to Rottnest Island. The option also exists to combine your ferry ride with a few activities and tours on and around Rottnest Island, which is great if you're after a guided and informative visit to Rotto.
