We have heard we are currently experiencing the worst winter in Perth in a number of years, so we counted ourselves lucky to be able to get out to Rottnest Island on one of the few sunny pleasant days.
Other than a few isolated areas in Western Australia, and a few islands off the WA coast, you will not find quokkas anywhere else in the world. Due to unique geological events these cute little marsupials are an oddity to this region and Rottnest Island is the motherlode of them. In fact the name Rottnest was derived from an earlier explorer landing there and upon seeing the thousands of quokkas announced that the island was a “rats nest” and sailed on.
