BREED­ING QUOKKAS, ROT­TNEST IS­LAND

Australian Geographic - - Wild Australia -

Any time of year is a good time to en­joy the ridicu­lously cute quokkas of Rot­tnest Is­land, a 90-minute ferry ride from Perth. But late sum­mer and au­tumn is when they are likely to have tiny new­borns in their pouches – some­thing you can learn more about by join­ing a guided quokka walk. The free, 45-minute tour de­parts daily from the meet­ing post at 2.15pm and will take you to all the best spots to en­joy this cheer­ful-look­ing, minia­ture wal­laby that has now be­come a global so­cial me­dia star.
