Rotto - As the locals call it, is a 'must see' on your visit to Perth. This little fella is called a Quakka. They are native to Rotto and are curious little friendly guys. This one wasn't posing :o) but could smell the chips we had on top of the pram. Rotto has great snorkling and is a short trip by ferry from Freo (Fremantle or Hillaries Boat Harbour north of Perth).
