If your family loves going to Rottnest Island, then here is a great offer from Rottnest Fast Ferries. You will need to sign up for this but if you do, WA kids travel free with Rottnest Fast Ferries all year round! Children are considered those 12 and under.
Plus from 26 December, there will be a new high-speed catamaran. This will the largest in Rottnest Fast Ferries' existing fleet with a capacity of 420 passengers.
The launch of a new daily Kids Travel Free offer is to celebrate the Harbour Master's arrival. It means two children per adult ferry fare can travel to Rottnest free any day of the week.
The 37.2 metre Harbour Master has a variety of spaces for passengers including multiple decks, three passenger deck levels, a spacious airy cabin, oversized windows, plus private areas which will also be helpful while social distancing is still in place.
Being a twin-hull catamaran, the vessel provides increased stability, so this should be a smooth ride to Rottnest. The new vessel will include a dedicated bike and luggage storage, disabled access, charging stations, WIFI connectivity and a snack bar. The service will leave from Hillarys Boat Harbour.
An email will be sent each season with a new booking code to book your kids travel free. The booking code will be valid for bookings made in each season for travel any time of the year, bookings are online only.
