For a day trip, we took the ferry out to beautiful Rottnest Island. Rottnest is Dutch for Rat's Nest - the wee quokka's were mistaken for rats by the Dutch explorers and hense, the island got its name.

Whatever they call it, this place is stunning with its white beaches and turquoise blue waters. We opted for a guided bus tour around the island which was good fun. There is even an airport on the island! Again, we saw some wildlife and wildly expensive boats! Nice for some!!! The pies were more our style.
