Hemsworth discovers the quokka selfie

March 18, 2019 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

Rottnest Island welcomed Chris Hemsworth and family this week, with the Hollywood star adding to the list of stars to snap a #quokkaselfie.

Discovery – Rottnest Island opened just two weeks ago, and Chris Hemsworth is among the first guests to experience the 83-tent resort, staying in a Superior Family tent.

Complete with king-sized bed, bunk bed annexe, ensuite, kitchenette and private deck, the tents are the perfect base for any family holiday.

Discovery – Rottnest Island General Manager Andy Cleverley said that it’s been a star-studded opening for the resort with visits from both Sir Bob Geldof and Chris Hemsworth in the past week.

“Just two weeks from opening, it was a huge privilege to host Chris, Elsa and the kids at the resort,” said Andy.

“The Hemsworth family were able to soak up the sand and sun from one of the most spectacular coastal locations in WA – Pinky Beach.”

“They enjoyed local WA flavours from Pinky’s Beach Club and experienced a true Australian holiday from the luxury of one of our beautifully appointed eco-tents,” said Andy.

Chris was snapped at Rottnest Island with the island’s resident friendly marsupial – the quokka. In recent years the quokka has become a social media star, thanks partly to some famous friends capturing their own #quokkaselfie, including Hugh Jackman, Roger Federer, Margot Robbie and now Chris Hemsworth.

Chris and his family arrived in Western Australia last week with their entourage, including Hollywood heavyweight Matt Damon. The famous families spent the week surfing, fishing and relaxing at Red Bluff on Australia’s spectacular Coral Coast and at Rottnest Island, just 25 minutes from Perth. Matt Damon visited Rottnest Island for the day, joining Chris and his family who stayed overnight at the resort.
