​B Shed ferry terminal and cafe
Built in 1926 as a general cargo shed, B Shed was refurbished in 2010. It houses a ferry terminal and cafe at the eastern end, Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation offices at the western end and a large space in the middle which is available for hire. The refurbishment of B Shed was awarded a State Heritage Award in 2011.

Express Lane Cafe

Express Lane Café has great coffee and a range of reasonably priced meals and snacks available from the fabulous waterfront location. You can sit inside B Shed or outside on the café deck and watch the working port. The cafe is also available for functions. (Phone 9336 5945.) More information here.

B Shed Ferry Terminal

Contemporary units, which house the ferry terminal offices and the café, are located within the shed and contrast vividly with the shed’s original structure. There are a number of historic photographs featured in glass panels and murals.

Rottnest Express and Captain Cook Cruises have modern offices within the ferry terminal (see photo below).


There are toilets, disabled toilets, a baby change room and an ATM.

A great place to visit

B Shed is a wonderful place to visit. You can wander around this restored 1926 wharf shed, look at the historic photos in glass panels and mosaics and the wharf structure through cut-outs in the floor, book a ferry ride, hold a function or simply buy a coffee and watch the ships go by.
