Rottnest Island Authority Rangers and Police issue infringement notices for offences under the Rottnest Island Authority Act 1987 and the Rottnest Island Regulations 1988. Infringements must be paid within 21 days of the date of issue to avoid further action being taken.

What happens if an infringement is not paid?
If an appeal or payment is not received within 21 days of the date of issue, the Rottnest Island Authority may refer the matter to the Fines Enforcement Registry for collection. If the case is referred to the Fines Enforcement Registry for collection, additional fees will be incurred and you may face suspension of your driver’s licence and/or registration of any vehicles in your name.

Warning Notices
For less serious offences that can be easily rectified, such as failing to pay admission or marine hire facility fees, a warning notice may be issued explaining what you must do. If you fail to follow the direction of the warning notice, the Rottnest Island Authority may issue an infringement.

Warning for non-payment of admission fees / use of marine hire facilities
If you receive a warning for non-payment of admission fees or unauthorised use of a marine hire facility, you must pay the outstanding fees immediately to avoid having an infringement issued.
Payment for these fees can be made online.

All other warnings
If you receive a warning notice for any other offence, the warning notice will provide clear instruction on what you must do. If you fail to follow the direction, an infringement notice may be issued at the discretion of the Rottnest Island Authority.
Please be aware that after a number of warnings, the Rottnest Island Authority may choose to issue an infringement.
