Quokka Birthday 2021

You may have spotted the adorable joeys peeping out of their mum's pouches throughout winter and come spring, they are ready to hop out into the big wide world. Now that's cause for celebration all September long!

Activities throughout September include special wildlife tours, photography workshops, and a self-guided Quokka Detective treasure hunt.

Don’t miss the highlight event of the festivities - the Quokka Birthday Party on Sunday 19 September. With party activities for young and old, music, entertainment and special offers, plus appearances from the guests of honour themselves, it’s the birthday celebration of the year. 

This event is free but registration is required for some activities.
