Cheaper Rottnest ferry fares for seniors

Seniors will be able to travel to Rottnest Island for just $30 throughout winter, as part of a new Government initiative to continue making the tourist hotspot more accessible for Western Australians. The capped fare will apply to all those with a WA Seniors Card, offering a saving of at least $50 per person. Seniors can book travel to Rottnest Island and benefit from this offer until Sunday 18 August 2024.

The cheaper travel builds on other initiatives introduced to make the island paradise more affordable and accessible for Western Australians. This includes an overnight school camp subsidy for lower socioeconomic schools during Term 3, 2024, which potentially saves families of WA school students over $80 per child for an overnight camp.
