The Houtman Abrolhos Islands, named so in the 16th century, lie 64 km of the coast of Geraldton and are used as a base for rock lobster fishing. Visitors are not permitted to camp on the islands, due to the high natural and conservational value of the place. For more information on the Islands please see Abrolhos Islands Visitor's Guide. This part of the site is devoted to Mike and Kath Davidson and Garry and Loraine Augustson, who made our trip to North Island possible.
Two seals residing on the island are quite used to people and ignore passers-by completely. Snorkelling and scuba diving are known to be fantastic, so is the fishing. We didn't have much luck, the only catch was a parrot fish - beautiful, but not edible. We've been told that a couple of weeks before our visit a 7 feet tiger shark was caught near the jetty. The island also boasts the best landing strip on the Abrolhos (with all respect, some of our dirt road look the same) and a helicopter pad. Please click on the image to enlarge it.
