  Curious Quokka
by windsorgirl

Just a short ferry ride from Perth is Rottnest Island. Named so because the small marsupial quokkas that inhabit the island looked like rats to the Dutch explorers.
They are not at all like rats, they are like mini kangaroos and are very curious.

I recommend staying overnight at the hostel and renting a bike for 2 days to fully explore the island. There is also good snorkelling here.
