Snapshot: Rottnest Island

Short look + read photograph collections from places I’ve loved enough to capture.

Rottnest Island, WA, Australia

Rottnest Island is a popular tourist destination located 18km from the Australia mainland via a short ferry ride from Fremantle, Perth.

The island has over 22km of cycling tracks, which link spectacular pristine beaches – kick back and soak up the sun, or check out the vibrant marine life with a snorkel. Of its abundant wildlife – birds, colonies of sea lions and fur seals, by far the most famous (and adorable), is the quokka. Let’s face it, if you’re coming to Rottnest, it’s likely for a chance to see these rare, charming dough faced marsupials!

    1. Hey Ingrid, 😂 The only rotten thing are the flies – which swarm and cocoon your head during the summer – fly nets are a must. That said, If you’re ever in this part of the world, it’s well worth it just for these friendly little quokkas – only found in this isolated bit of the country.
