Experience Australia Group owns a number of iconic Australia tourism businesses including the Great Southern Rail and Cruise Whitsunday, details of which can be found below.
This is an exciting development in the progression of Rottnest Express and the vision we had when acquiring the business in 2007 to expand the operations, become the premier tourist business in Western Australia servicing Rottnest Island and connecting Rottnest Island to the mainland.
The merger with Experience Australia Group will accelerate the business of Rottnest Express in terms of expanding its focus on the tourist market in Western Australia and the synergy with Experience Australia’s other assets is expected to increase the number of interstate and overseas tourists visiting Western Australia and Rottnest Island.
“The growth in tourism in Western Australia and Australia is exciting for our industry and Experience Australia Group will play a key role in connecting tourists to a broad range of world-class opportunities across Australia” said Scott Bailey, Chairman, Rottnest Express.
“The opportunity with Experience Australia Group to expand our business in Western Australia and enhance our service offering to the residents of Perth and tourists is something we are very excited about”.
