This is the original Watercolour painting by Kenneth Lilly.

The Quokka from Australia is a type of wallaby. The island of Rottnest near Perth, is the primary home of the quokka, which is a marsupial.

Standing at about one meter tall, quokkas are covered with short, coarse brown-grey fur. They have small rounded ears and a black nose. An early Dutch visitor to the island, Willem de Vlamingh, mistook the marsupials for large rats when he arrived in 1696. He named the island Rattennest, Dutch for Rat's Nest, which was later adapted to Rottnest.

Original artwork for the Nature's Alphabet (Q for Quokka) series in Treasure no. 390 (4 July 1970).
