I went with 4 other boats (14 people) on a fishing trip to thevenarde island, we have been going there with groups of boats up to 18 boats for years and love it. I thought the service could not get any better for a isolated island but this year was even better than previous the staff made our trip as... More

Direction Island is an easy 20min boat ride from Onslow and has a nice peaceful relaxing feel to it. The only problem we experienced were the dredging ships surrounding the island. The dredging turned the water brown and made snorkleling impossible. It also affected the beach fishing. The shack was comfortable but with a little work it could be something... More

Thankyou for your feedback. We are glad to hear your experience of Direction Island was mostly peaceful and relaxing! It really is a special place and provides a truly unique island experience. There is a dredging program underway for a short period which at times affects the turbidity near shore and on this occasion Direction Island. It is scheduled to... More

Took the hour long boat trip out to Thevenard Island from Onslow, were promptly shown around the resort, and then dropped off to our ocean-view cabin. The aircon was already humming away, complimentary bottle of wine was a nice surprise, cabin very neat & well kitted out with all linens, full kitchen and big fridge/freezer, outdoor setting under shade sail...

This place has to be the premier fishing destination throughout Western Australia. This was my fourth visit and once again did not fail to live up to the hype . Some great activity to be seen in and around the island . Whales are abundant this time of year, turtles are everywhere , sharks are a dime a dozen too,... More

After arriving in Onslow, leaving your gear at the wharf & car at the lock up storage shed, it’s a one hour boat trip to Thevenard Island. Accommodation on the Island consists of twelve self-contained beach-front bungalows (ranging between two and five bedrooms) and ‘Club Thevenard’, a 30-room accommodation village, including dongas with and without ensuites. I stayed in the... More

Wow! The snorkeling and diving would rank as some of the best we have seen. My husband is a marine biologist and found 15 species of nudibranch on one dive. There is a dive shop to hire gear and the dive instructor was very helpful. Our godson went fishing on the charter boat and has plenty of photos to prove... More

Stayed here on a work trip for a week. Rooms were clean. Location is the best point. Right on the water front. Only one place to eat at night - Nina's. Got a bit expensive after a while. There's also a supermarket just accross the street which was useful. Breakfast was included - cereals, toast etc.

Step out of the front door of the unit on to a pristine Western Australian beach. This motel is in a great position. The rooms are clean and well furnished. The beds are comfortable. Onslow is a small town so breakfast options are limited however the very reasonable rate for this motel includes a continental breakfast. Toast and preserves, cereals,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Mackerel Islands is an island holiday jewel, which many wouldn't have thought was here. Just off of Onslow, Western Australia and only 100km North of Exmouth, Western Australia the underwater world and sheer volume of life will amaze all that visit. Fishing has been the leading activity here for many years. Beach front cabins offer that little piece of luxury that everyone wants, sitting and watching over the magnificent ocean from a 2-5 bedroom fully contained cabin, or taking advantage of the Club Thevenard budget style accommodation incorporating the island's bar and restaurant. This West Australian Island is experiencing the outback relaxed lifestyle, whilst being amazed at the beauty of the ocean, with your very own piece of paradise. ... more   less
