Rotto winter rates attract

Six of the 20 refurbished units earmarked for extended-stay visitors on Rottnest Island this winter have been booked.

The bookings came after Tourism Minister Kim Hames' announcement that holidaymakers would be able to stay on Rottnest for up to 16 weeks at greatly reduced prices as part of bid to attract more winter tourists to the island.

In addition to a 45 per cent discount on their accommodation rates, extended-stay visitors also get 10 discounted ferry fares for their stay and preferential barge rates to allow them to bring over their own furniture and fittings.
