Quokka Birthday 2022

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, a colouring competition and island business offers.

Don’t miss the highlight event of the festivities - the Quokka Birthday Party on Sunday 18 September. With party activities for young and old, live music, arts and crafts, boat rides and birthday cake, plus appearances from the guests of honour themselves, it’s the birthday celebration of the year. 

This event is free but registration is essential.
