  • Is there a complimentary airport shuttle?
    No. There is no complimentary shuttle service from Perth Airport, however the brand new TransPerth Airport line has recently opened and will cost you around $5. Services operate between 5:30am and 12:30am. When arriveing at Terminal 3 or 4, make your way to Redcliffe Station, or if you arrive at Terminal 1 or 2, make your way to Airport Central Station. Ride the train to Perth Central Station (about an 18 minute trip), then transfer onto the Fremantle line. The journy from perth central to Fremantle station takes around 30 minutes. Once you arrive at Fremantle station, the hotel is around a 750 meter walk, though taxi and uber services are availalbe. It is advised you download the TransPerth app to assist in planning your journy to Fremantle Station.
