Miche at a flooded woodland near Claremont...

They do things differently in W.A., no flat back lorries for floats here, Santa takes part in the Christmas parade in an open topped Jaguar accompanied by a robotic dancer and the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz...

Rottnest Island

Probably my favourite I visited in the Perth area - the island is home to Quokkas... below one on the veranda of the island's cafe...

 

Miche, the wires to keep gulls and kookaburras out. Miche had been hassled by a Kookaburra on a previous trip to Australia and was taking no chances...

 


We rented bikes to go round the rest of the island...

The helmets were a bit basic, but they did the job...

 

Quokka...

Me at the Sail & Anchor in Freemantle...
