We are just to expensive here. Try going to Rotto v Gold Coast. Same costs even with Airfaires. If the cost of a ferry ride was $10.00 then people would go. Why do we need the Luxury Ferries at Top Dollar. Bring back the Tamarea 2!

Why build a big fancy hotel on Rottnest. Why not build ECO accomodation Like on Woody Island, Esperance - see Get the number of local tourists up and with higher volumes the ferry prices can be lowered. Some imagination in WA Tourism would go a long way to boosting tourisim.
