Rottnest Island Biophysics Field Trip 2003

Around the Rottnest Island Research Station

This series of photographs were taken around the Rottnest Island Research Station where we would bunk down after a hard day's graft. The railway line ran right past the front door and next to the house there was a yard full of railway oriented bits and pieces including stacks of rails, rusted railway service vehicles, piles of railway sleepers and even the Rottnest train stored away for what looked like a major service. Just past the railway line was the Rottnest airstrip, so some light entertainment was provided by watching the light aircraft landing and taking off and the odd helicopter visit here and there.
