From the Outback to crystal waters

Jump, jump, Kangaroo Joe
Jump, jump, come on let's go

Jump, jump, up hill and down
Jump, jump, right into town.
Near Kalgoorlie
Rottnest Island
The Quokka is a marsupial - has become rare and is a protected species on several of the islands off Western Australia. It's small and weighs 2.5 - 5 kg. More info on http://en.wikipedia.org./wiki.Quokka
At first Pete thought they were really cute but they became a nuisance while they were in their meetings. They had to close the doors, otherwise these little creatures would come in and hop happily around their feet!

Beautiful blue waters

Perth in the distance

Buoys are for the day trippers to moor their boats

Crystal clear water

Sigh ... no .... BIG sigh ... maybe I will get there ... one day !!!!!!!


  1. Oh how sweet those little Quokka's look. Mind you, I think they would annoy me too if they were always around my feet!:-)

  2. If you do I want to be there too! *sigh*
