As stated by Tourism Minister Rita Saffioti:

“Rottnest Island is an amazing place to visit all year round as one of our State’s most popular tourism attractions.

“These new recreational services really have something for everyone, so there’s even more reason to visit the island this summer – whether it’s a trip with the family or a day out with friends.

“Of course, the services are also really important in boosting visitor spend on the island, as well as supporting local operators and helping to generate job opportunities.”
