Shuttle bus temporarily replacing Ettalong and Wagstaffe ferry services

Due to shifting sand bars in the Ettalong Channel, Ettalong and Wagstaffe ferries are suspended with services terminating at Patonga.

From Monday 19 June, a free shuttle bus service will run between Ettalong and Patonga Wharfs to assist ferry passengers during key travel times.

  • Monday to Friday the shuttle bus will run as follows:
    • Morning peak - 5.30am to 9.30am
    • Afternoon peak - 3.30pm to 6.30pm
  • Weekend shuttle bus services will run extended hours during the day to meet the current scheduled timetable.
  • The shuttle bus will leave approximately 35 minutes before the ferry departure time from Patonga wharf. 
  • Wheelchair users please be aware that Patonga Wharf is not wheelchair accessible and a solution to this is being arranged.

A shuttle ferry service for Wagstaffe passengers to meet the shuttle bus at Ettalong wharf will be available soon, and approval for dredging works are currently being sought.

Allow extra travel time and plan your trip for real time, up-to-date information.
