(Rottnest Island), located 18 kilometers northwest of Perth, the capital of Western Australia, is a small island suitable for a short trip of 1 / 3 days. In addition to the colorful salt lakes and beautiful sea views, the island has a lovely little guy on the island, "Australian short-tailed kangaroo", which is on the verge of extinction. You can rent a bike to travel around the island, or you can walk along the path and enjoy yourself. (Fremantle) is available by ferry from downtown Perth or Port Freeman.

Little Salmon Bay is one of the more suitable places for snorkeling. At the same time, it also has the most beautiful beach on the island, and the lighthouse in the distance from the center is the famous Wadjemup Lighthouse..

Geordie Bay here is very lively, a lot of yachts docked here. Parakeet Bay is also very beautiful.

Take a short-tailed kangaroo Quokka selfie!

One of the highlights of this trip to the island is to meet the owner of the island, Quokka (kangaroo). Why call it the owner of the island, because the island is named after the little kangaroo, "Rottnest means mouse nest," so the island is also called Mouse Island. This smiling little thing, lively and not afraid of people, and they have always looked smiling, known as the happiest animal in the world, and the group photo with the little kangaroo became the most interesting activity on Rotenis Island.

But after being misunderstood as a "mouse" and a cruel game invented by "kangaroo football" invented by sadists, a large number of people have been abused and killed, and now the world still lives on the island with less than 10,000. Most of them live on Rotenis Island, almost none on mainland, Australia. It is generally easy to find them on the island, you should pay attention to observe the bushes and shade, because the little kangaroo is more afraid of heat.

They are also more common in places where people eat, and you can see them standing on their legs to eat, very cute, but please don`t feed, in order to maintain the wild nature of the little kangaroo, the island also made a clear rule not to feed.

ride a bike

Rotenis Island is a car-free area. The best way to visit is to ride a bike. You can rent a bike through ferry after boarding the island.

The island has always been a playground for local Perth family vacations. there are no cars (public sightseeing buses only), seclusion, surrounded by beaches, cycling around the island for about 22 kilometers, and it takes about 5 to 7 hours to ride and play. The most people choose to go back and forth on the same day, do the earliest boat, the latest boat back, play on the island for 6 to 7 hours. If you want to see more beautiful scenery and experience it slowly, the best way is to stay for one night.
