  One of the southern beaches on Rottnest Island
by martin_nl

If you have more than one day in Perth you can also visit Rottnest Island. The beaches here are very beautiful, even in winter. In town here you can get close to quokkas. These marsupials can only be found on this island and there are plenty of them. They are not disturbed by your presence, but you should not feed them or touch them.

You can rent a bike before you go onto the ferry in either Perth city or in Fremantle. When you get to the island you can pick your bike up. From town you can cycle one of the routes on the island. I would suggest taking the route that goes all along the coast, starting at the southern beaches, since these are by far the best of the island, even though the beaches are great all over the other parts of the island too.
