Take me to the Island

We have just enjoyed a long weekend at Rottnest Island (off the coast from Fremantle) and I had forgotten just how nice it is there. This was our first time at "Rotto" since we started our little family and let me tell you it really is a fantastic place to holiday with kids.
With hardly any traffic and lots of other families it is a very safe place for Junior to practice his bike riding and he loved being able to pop next door to visit his friends (who were also holidaying there).
I even managed to get on my bike a couple of times and took an early morning walk with Bub (who has taken to waking as soon as the sun is up!). I also really enjoyed a nice cup of coffee for morning tea each day at either the cafe or bakery.
The accommodation we stayed in is simple but functional and Junior loved watching the quokkas who came to visit each evening. Alas, we only stayed three nights but hopefully we will get there again in the New Year.


  1. Sounds like a great weekend! We'd love to hear more about it! Hopefully we'll make it there sometime soon.

  2. Sounds fantastic, much better than a weekend camping in Norfolk. Glad you all had a lovely time x
