When boarding a public transport Ferry with a pet or other animal, please be aware that:
Assistance animals with a valid form of accepted accreditation are allowed on all public transport in NSW and don’t need to be restrained in a suitable box, basket or other container.
For information to determine if your animal qualifies as an assistance animal and advice on travelling with an assistance animal on public transport in NSW, please visit the Assistance Animal Permit page.
In accordance with the Passenger Transport (General) Regulation 2017, regulation 53 “Control of animals”, pet animals must not travel on ferries unless they are suitably confined in a box, basket or other container. However, permission to bring pet animals on ferries is still required by the operating crew. This rule does not apply to assistance animals.
In accordance with industry recognition, therapy animals, facility animals and emotional support animals are considered to be companion animals. These animals do not have public access rights and can only travel using the arrangements provided for travelling with pets.
