ASP Ambassador Lesley, Quokka Selfie, Rottnest Island, WA

Destination Spotlight: Rottnest Island

Ambassador Lesley Stone with koala

'The beaches on ‘Rotto’ are so breathtakingly beautiful with crystal clear water with some of the whitest sand I’ve ever seen. It’s hard to believe it’s only a short hop from the city of Perth. I loved the quokkas and I was lucky enough to snap my own ‘quokka selfie’. I’d recommend a visit for day or even longer – there’s so much to see and do!’

Rottnest Island, WA

Just 11 miles off the coast of Perth, but an entire world away, lies the sunny holiday island of Rottnest, blessed with a casual atmosphere, picturesque scenery, dazzling marine life and some of the world’s finest beaches and pristine bays.
