Little Quokka’s Big Birthday Weekend

September 16, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Come and join the little quokka’s big birthday weekend, a program of fun workshops and free activities for children and their families.

As we welcome a new brood of quokka joeys, we celebrate all the joy they bring over two big days in September.

Over one weekend in Djilba, we celebrate the wonder of nature on Wadjemup / Rottnest Island through a program packed with live entertainment, sensory play, art and craft activities, photography workshops and eco education.

Choose a day to join the party on Rottnest Island and book tickets for the family – event entry is free for children and adults.

Little children aged 5 – 12 years can also receive an exclusive Nature Passport Activity & Sticker Booklet on arrival when they present their event ticket. Don’t wait too long, as stocks are limited!

This event is free to attend, but event registrations are required.

Please ensure you register all members of your family, including adults and children. Children must be accompanied by an adult and supervised at all times during the event.

While every intent is for events to go ahead as planned, in some circumstances they may have to change due to inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
