We took our own boat to Direction Island and stayed 4 nights in the rustic but comfy shack. It was sensational to have the island all to ourselves and thoroughly enjoyed our time beach combing and searching for fresh turtle tracks. We then headed to Thevenard Island for 2 nights and again had the whole island to ourselves with Mackerel... More

A group of 14 of us travelled to Thevenard on a Sunday. We were met on the island by friendly tour operators who stayed with us for the entire day. We were taken to our base for the day, a lovely, tidy beach house with kitchen and bathroom facilities. We then hit the beach and enjoyed fishing, beverages and nibbles.... More

Two mates and I flew a light aircraft into Thevenard Island on a bit of an impromptu trip not really knowing what to expect. The airstrip is great, and over 1,000m long and paved, which is handy if you are taking off with full esky’s etc. We got picked up from the strip by Art, shown our accommodation and a... 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
