Rottnest Fast Ferries

Your Gateway to Perth's Island Playground

Rottnest... WA's most beautiful island is just 19 kilometers off Perth's coastline, and a lightning fast ocean crossing in air-conditioned comfort on one of our high speed ferries.

The island, 11km long and 4.5km at its widest point, is an A-Class reserve enjoying a semi-arid Mediterranean style climate with stunning coral reefs, crystal clear waters and unique wildlife. Rottnest boasts pristine bays and secluded beaches, some of the finest in the world, and has a unique style of architecture dating back to the 1800's. No matter how you spend your time at Rottnest, you are sure to be amazed by what the island has to offer.

From day trips to overnight accommodation packages or exploring Rottnest by yourself, Rottnest Fast Ferries has your island experience covered. Departing Hillarys Boat Harbour daily, we offer a variety of travel times and tour options to accommodate your perfect day out.

Coastal, Whale Watching and Twilight cruises operate seasonally, as well as Full Day and Overnight Accommodation Packages at Rottnest Island. Bike and snorkel equipment is available to hire before you depart the harbour - saving valuable time once on the island.

Free coach transfers are available from Perth CBD, Northbridge and Scarborough to the ferry terminal at Hillarys Boat Harbour. Hillarys Boat Harbour also has free long-term parking available for anyone making their own way to the terminal.
