Rottnest

For my last day I took the ferry over to Rottnest – an island about 10 miles off the coast of Perth. There are no cars allowed on the island but you can hire a bike to get around. So I spent the day pedalling round the various bays and beaches. Rottnest is home to wombles (actually Quokka’s but they look like wombles). Its the only place you find them and since they have no natural predators they’re quite happy to let you come near them. I was lucky to find one with a baby womble in its pouch that kept sticking its head out to have a look at the world.
