If you’ve heard of Rottnest Island, you’ve probably heard of a Quokka! When I show people a photo of a Quokka the first question I get is, what the hell is that? Besides it being the happiest animal on the planet, it’s pretty much a big rat in the marsupial family. This was my second time to the Island and I was so excited to return. Rotto-Rotty, whatever you want to call, is only a 45 min ferry from Fremantle, Western Australia. On the island you can hire road bikes to ride around the island. You can easily do the whole island in a day. I have only done day trips but you can stay longer.
Not only is the wildlife inviting but this water is the clearest water I have seen yet.
