I spent a weekend on Rottnest Island, which is a little paradise just offshore of Perth. When I was there, I referred to it as a “playground,” which makes sense because it offers so much for all ages to enjoy. People can take advantage of its secluded coves, crystal-clear waters, reefs, and surf breaks. The main way to explore the island is the miles and miles of bike paths that cross the land. It boasts two lighthouses and pink lakes. And of course, it is one of very few homes to the quokka, an adorable cat-sized mammal that has been marketed successfully as a companion for selfies with its endearing smile and willingness to get up close and personal with tourists.
Take a look at my weekend adventure to this little slice of utopia!
