Free travel for kids and new ‘Rottnest After Dark’ promotion

WA Minister for Tourism announces new travel incentives From December 23, kids under the age of 12 can travel for free to Rottnest on same-day trips with the waiving of the Rottnest Island admission fee and special ferry package deals.

For the first time, all three ferry providers have offered various deals for kids to travel free for the day up to the end of January 2021.

And from now until late April 2021, the island is also introducing the Rottnest After Dark with no $19.50 island admission fee per adult for same-day trips after 2pm.

Day trippers to Rottnest - home to the world's happiest animal the quokka - will now be able to enjoy sunset sundowners and dinner after dark with ferry companies adding additional return services as late as 10:30pm to Fremantle on Fridays and Saturdays.

There will also be a range of new evening experiences including Segway sunset tours, live music and special menus.
