The development of Elizabeth Quay has enabled us to enjoy the waterways of the Swan River in lots of fun ways.

The TransPerth Ferry
The TransPerth Ferry is the cheapest way of viewing the city from the Swan River. The ferry leaves from the jetty at Elizabeth Quay to Mends Street Jetty, South Perth with the journey taking 8 minutes. You can get off Mends Street and burn off some energy at the Mends Street playground and grab a coffee and bite to eat at one of the nearby cafes. Or if you wish you can remain on board and return straight back to Elizabeth Quay. Ferries depart Elizabeth Quay every 30 minutes on the hour and half past.  A family smart rider priced $12.10 provides the best value journey. 2 adults and up to 5 additional concessions can travel all day on the TransPerth network which includes trains, buses and the ferry.
