The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Western Australia in 2007

Return to the Trip Overview

Smelly fingers:
Devoid of natural predators, the island is a haven for the quokkas. Since we had arrived at sunrise by air taxi before the boatloads of other tourists, the birding was good and the quokkas were doubly bold! Here are a few sniffing Beth's fingers, hoping for a handout (which they certainly did not get)!

Snorkeling at the island was particularly fun--there is an underwater nature trail that took us from one submerged informative plaque to another. Very cool.

That evening we flew back to the mainland, and got a nice tour of Perth in the process. We circled over the Yule Brook Botany Reserve, also known as Cannington Swamp (the name of which might ring some bells for carnivorous plant enthusiasts).
