My husband and I were not quite sure what this 5 day boat trip on the Eco Abrolhos would be like. Our reunion group of 7 trip was organised by The Villa discovery group in Perth and our Perth friends forwarded the information on to us in Melbourne and another friend in Adelaide. We all liked the idea of learning... More

I feel extremely lucky and grateful to have grown up on these Islands and able to call them home. Pristine waters, abundant sea life, deserted islands, shipwrecks and larrikin crayfisherman are just a few things you may see. If you have a bucket list then you must put the Abrolhos Islands on it. Wendy Mann and her team at Geraldton... More

Not well publicized, these reefs and islands are magical from the air with the only sign of human habitation the small cray fishing huts on some of the barren islands. It was way more scenic from the air than I was expecting. At ground level they look a bit like the starker bits of Rottnest Island.

The Abrolhos Islands lay around 70km's off the Geraldton Coast line and are accessible by Air Charter or boats. The 122 islands that make up the Abrolhos archipelago are simply stunning and mainly untouched. The islands sit in the Leeuwin current which means that coral reefs thrive there. Snorkeling is simply amazing. We took a flight over and saw humpback... More

Great clean waters in with 130 islands to just off the coast of Geraldton. Great fishing and lobster abound the area. Catch squid of an evening or relax with a cold beer as the sun settles in the water. They have flights and cruises to the four island groups, Southern group being the closest. A must see if you are... More

I traveled to and landed on the Abrolhos Islands in September with Geraldton Air Charters. The flight out and back exceeded any expectations that I had. We flew over breaching humpback whales, a manta ray, and then swooped low over the lobster fishing villages on the southern and middle groups of islands before landing at East Wallabi for a guided...

Just returned from a 5 day cruise to the Abrolhos Islands off Geraldton in WA and what a thoroughly captivating experience it was. Our interest in these islands stemmed primarily from a desire to learn more about the shipwreck Batavia and we could not have chosen a better way of achieving that than by travelling on board the Eco Abrolhos...

I visited these islands some 20 years ago. As far as I am aware, there were (are?) no 'tours' as such, although you may be able to arrange private charter vessels. East and West Wallabi Islands are historically important, and it was amazing to sail by Morning Reef (the site of the wreck of the Batavia). Diving is not much,... More
