About Quokka

The strength of Quokka is our local connection to local people just like you.

Quokka is the trusted name in the Buying and Selling Classified market within Western Australia.

Having grown up within the WA community for over 18 years Quokka is now recognised as a local of our state. Whether you are placing an ad or buying an item through Quokka, both the website and paper offer local readers and local buyers throughout WA.

The Quokka brand includes a new world class auction and classified website delivering West Aussie products and services to West Aussies, as well as a full colour classified paper averaging 94 pages that reaches thousands and thousands of loyal readers weekly.

Quokka captured WA's interest when it offered classified ads for FREE. Free is a happy word. It's free* to advertise your private items in both the paper and on the website. Happiness is knowing that in this day and age of ever increasing prices you can still receive something for free.

Each fresh edition of Quokka is on sale Thursday throughout all of WA and is available from newsagents, delis, service stations and supermarkets.

Quokka's call centre and web support centre is local. We are located in Osborne Park and our staff all live locally. When you speak with one of our people about placing an ad or asking for help, you know the person on the other end of the phone is within your time zone. We know that feeling confident when buying and selling in your own backyard matters to local people like you. It makes sense to deal locally.

There is an average of over 16,000 items to choose from in the Quokka paper each week.

Other top categories to look out for include pets, baby, household and furniture, tools, sheds, electronics, computers, cameras, game consoles, toys, antiques, hobbies, sports, real estate, outdoors and gardening, bedroom and so much more. Plus there's also free stuff and items that people want to swap. No matter what you are looking for you are bound to find it in Quokka.

Why the cartoon on the cover of the Quokka paper? Quokka strives to match the quirky name of the paper with our character 'Q' in the cartoons that appear on the front cover of the weekly edition. 'Q' and his family and friends are placed within local events of the season, stories that link to classifications within the paper, or just crazy ideas that we think will appeal to our varied readers. The cartoon is the papers must-see for many readers each week.

If getting the paper early for the best bargains is your thing, you can have it home delivered by calling 1800 811 855.
