Quokka the only place (apart from a couple of remote places) that you will see them is Rottnest Island off the coast of Perth Western Australia...nice day trip to the island. As you can guess they are well protected. I love how the baby is peeking out.
Quokka and baby in Australia. The quokka, the only member of the genus Setonix, is a small macropod about the size of a domestic cat. Like other marsupials in the macropod family (such as the kangaroos and wallabies), the quokka is herbivorous and mainly nocturnal. It can be found on some smaller islands off the coast of Western Australia,
