122 islands make up the pristine Houtman Abrolhos Islands. An archipelago with crystal blue waters and an abundance of sea life make a visit to the Islands a must for all visitors to Geraldton.
Located approximately 60km off the Geraldton coast, the Islands comprise three major island groups, the Wallabi, Easter and Pelsaert Groups stretching from north to south across 100 kilometres of ocean.
Known for the tragic Batavia Story, the islands are also recognized for cray fishing, pearls, bird and marine life. The islands and their surrounding reef communities are a meeting place for tropical and temperate sea life, forming one of the State’s unique marine areas.
Diving, fishing, snorkelling, photography, bird watching, the Abrolhos Islands are truly spectacular.
Enjoy a 2 hour, half day or full day flight or if you have more time consider a 3-9 day charter to immerse yourself in its unique beauty.
A trip to the WA Museum – Geraldton to hear the fascinating yet brutal Batavia Story is a must before venturing out to the islands.
