Join us in celebrating the Quokka Birthday this September

You may have spotted the adorable joeys peeping out of their mum’s pouches throughout winter and come spring, they’ll be ready to hop out into the big wide world. Now that’s cause for celebration!

After the inaugural Quokka Birthday last year, we’re bringing the festivities back for 2020 and extending the fun for the entire month of September so everyone can join us in honouring these much loved members of the Rottnest family.

With party activities for young and old, music, entertainment and special offers, plus appearances from the guests of honour themselves – this is one birthday celebration you won’t want to miss.
