Scheme closed – Refund of marine-related fees in response to COVID-19

Rottnest Island Authority’s scheme to refund a portion of the admission fee and the annual mooring licence fee, for a period equivalent to the length of the Island closure in 2020, ended on 1 March 2021.

Rottnest Island was closed to visitors on 25 March 2020 to enable the establishment of a quarantine facility as part of the WA Government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The island reopened to the WA public on 6 June 2020.

All fees that have not been claimed will be retained by RIA and will be used to contribute to the ongoing cost of providing marine facilities and associated services on Rottnest Island.
