Quokka- Australia Day

Every Australia Day, Perth has a huge fireworks display.


Quokka, issue 702, January 21 2010- Australia Day

Some fisherpeople and boat-docking enthusiasts might recognise this as the Coode St Jetty in South Perth.

  1. Hi James
    Happy New Year!
    Just letting you know that I did receive the Quokka editions that I was missing from my collection.
    I’m now endeavouring to collect all of 2010’s front covers.
    The one I like the most so far is the New Year’s eddition.
    Keep up the good work!

    1. Hi Georgina, happy new year to you too. I’m glad you completed your collection, and I hope you like the 2010 covers.
