On the western edge of Australia, perched on the fringe of the continental shelf lies a chain of extraordinary islands. The island and their waters teem with life.
But the most remarkable island is Rottnest, the realm of the Quokka – a small wallaby species found in Western Australia and nowhere else on the planet. Quokkas are famously known as the happiest animal on earth, but the truth is that these little creatures, only about the size of a domestic cat are contenders for the title of ‘toughest animal on earth’, because all the odds here are against them.
In Rottnest Island Kingdom of the Quokka the secret life of quokka is revealed, along with the incredible story of the life cycles of the other wildlife on Rottnest, Carnac and Penguin Islands.
