Rottnest Express has been serving the Island for 50 years now and knows it better than most. If you’re a visitor to Perth, Rottnest is the must see destination and we’d love to take you there. If you’re a local and haven’t been to Rotto for a while — it’s time to rediscover Rotto — it’s easier than you think.
