die Anlegestelle der kleinen Fähre nach Penguin Island

Penguin Island, minus the penguins

Penguin Island is a small island in the Shoalwater Bay and home to the Little Penguins. Unfortunately, if you visit during the daytime, you need to be really lucky to see those in the wild.

The permanent soundscape of birds in Australia

What stands out to us every time we are there, is the permanent sound of birds in Australia.

The Yardie Creek Walk Trail

The Yardie Creek Walk Trail is most beautiful early in the morning. As we camped just next door on the Yardie Creek Campground, we were able to start early.

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.

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.

Shark Bay

We spent two days at Shark Bay, known for its rich aquatic life. Whales don’t pass by at this time of the year and the dugongs didn’t show up either.


Pelican feeding in Kalbarri

Kalbarri is a small place close to the Kalbarri National Park, which for obvious reasons is quite full during the season. But even now, out of season, there is a small attraction: the pelican feeding every morning.
