That is really good news but how did they all find their way there? Tourists from China, Germany, Switzerland and elsewhere regularly ask me at Fremantle railway station how to get to the ferry terminal. There are no signs at the railway station, nothing in English, Mandarin, German or French with the words 'Rottnest' or ferry'. Letters to the Fremantle council, Public Transport Authority, Transperth and the three ferry operators all go into a black hole. Telephone calls about the lack of signage are politely answered with a 'thank you, we will pass it on to the relevant authority'. Nothing happens. What a shame.
