Vehicle Ferry Service

Palm Island Barge Company provides a daily return vehicle ferry service from Lucinda to Palm Island Monday to Friday. (Our timetable is available on this website.) Drivers travel free with the vehicle, and passengers travelling in the vehicles are required to pay the same fare as walk-on ticketed passengers.

Drivers and passengers are able to vacate their vehicles during the journey to and from Palm Island. They are welcome in the upstairs wheelhouse and outdoor seating area, where complimentary tea and coffee is available and softdrink is available for purchase. Please note that on HMV 'Lady Fraser' this facility is not available, the wheelhouse is for crew only due to the size and accessibility.

Our company policy requires all passengers travelling on the HMV 'Olympic' and 'Lady Fraser' to listen to the safety brief prior to departure and to conduct themselves in an orderly manner.

Alcohol restrictions apply on Palm Island. Passengers are only allowed one (1) carton of light beer per ticketed passenger. One carton of light beer is allowed per vehicle, regardless of the number of passengers travelling. Please note that beer must be in cans, not bottles.

If you would like to travel please contact our office as bookings are essential.
