Chamber of Commerce

The Rottnest Island Chamber of Commerce Inc. (RICC) represents the commercial interests of the businesses that operate on or in connection with the Island. These include the ferries, accommodation, entertainments, shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as the maintenance and supply services.

The Chamber supports the responsible development of Rottnest Island in ways that preserve the pristine beauty and the cultural heritage of the Class A Reserve for generations to come.

Originally established in 1997 as the ‘Rottnest Island Business Community’, the members voted in December 2013 to change its name to the ‘Rottnest Island Chamber of Commerce Inc.’ (aka RICC), as a better reflection of the association’s objectives

The Chamber is committed to developing a deeper engagement with decision-makers, tourism bodies and enterprises to achieve its strategic objectives. These centre on enhancing visitor experience and increasing visitor numbers, in sustainable ways, for the benefit of all.
