in line not online

More news of the beautiful island from today's POST.

This is still on the RIA's site: "If difficulties are encountered, you are requested to call the RIA Central Reservations on (08) 9432 9111 to make your booking."

Rottnest diehards who queued for December 2011 bookings this week had the last laugh
when the island’s online accommodation system crashed.

People who slept outside the Rottnest Island Authority‘s Fremantle
office secured their holidays.

But people who tried to book via computer were confronted with a dancing quokka and error messages.

They were told to use the phone.

Pam O’Connell bedded down on Sunday night and was 14th in the queue.

“Some people arrived on Thursday and slept here six nights before bookings opened on
Wednesday,” she said.

She said the 40 people in the queue said they had made the right choice.

“In line is better than online,” one laughed.
