Rottnest Island

This small island near Perth, Western Australia, has been the venue for a series of relaxacons called Ratcon. (The island's name is believed to derive from Dutch sailors mistaking small marsupials native to the island for rats.)

Not only have there been joke suggestions of "Ratcon for Natcon", but Rottnest Island has also received votes1 in site selection for Worldcon.
