We Had No Idea There Are Quokkas On Bluff Knoll

For a critter more associated with Rotto in the summertime, this video doing the rounds made us do a double-take.

I mean, we had no idea there even were quokkas on Bluff Knoll, but apparently there’s a decent population of them and hikers have reported seeing them - if you’re patient.

It’s not completely unusual to hear of snow during the colder months on Bluff Knoll, located near Albany and more than 1000 metres above sea level.

Bluff Knoll is the same mountain where an elderly man was rescued from earlier on Friday.

A Bureau of Meteorology spokeswoman said the heaviest snowfall at Bluff Knoll so far this winter was on Wednesday.

The coldest month on the mountain is usually September and snow falls there 1.7 times per year on average.

The snowiest year on record was 2016 when the peak was dusted six times.
