Nomen est omen: Quokkas

Rottnest Island is not only the home of the quokkas, who give this blog its name, but also a really nice destination.

Herron Point

Herron Point is a very peaceful place at the Collins Pool in the Peele region.


During a hike through the Cape Naturaliste National Park we had our first encounter with a snake today.

Busselton Jetty

The Australians have a soft spot for records. Every place has something big to be proud of. Busselton has his Jetty.


It’s easy to spend some time in Bunbury.

Aldi, and the advantage of travelling in a self contained vehicle

Aldi in Australia is similar to Aldi in Switzerland. And in Bunbury we are allowed to stay free of charge for 48 hours as a self contained vehicle.

Yanchep National Park

We liked the Yanchep National Park very much. So much, we stayed for another day.

Are you… koala-fied?

Koalas are actually only native to the south of Australia. But in the Yanchep National Park there is a Koala Boardwalk.


In the morning sun we visited the Nambung National Park with the Pinnacles. An impressive sight.

Turquoise Coast

From our cozy place by the sea we have set off today further south. Via Jurien Bay we drove along the Indian Ocean Drive to Cervantes.
