IT’s pleasing to read that more people are travelling on the ferry to South Perth.
I was also pleased that a small tourist ferry is now operating from Elizabeth Quay to Claisebrook.
I have always been an advocate of using our river for passenger ferries for pleasure and an alternative way to get to the city and sporting venues.
A good start would be a ferry service to Point Walter every hour with connecting buses from Fremantle and the suburbs.
Point Walter is a very a pleasant part of the river to visit with its safe, protected sandy beach and lots of shady trees.
Tourism and transport are very important to our state – let’s use our river more.
