Such a great time away. We were treated like kings by all of the Crew. Island Managers Art and Jade are the perfect hosts. Staff were personable and nothing was too much trouble.Thank you to Brad for skippering us over, Simon for assisting when I was unwell on the boat (was a bit rough!), Bill for being a great tour...

Staff were outstanding, Rooms were nice and clean, friendly and relaxing over the island even if the weather blew up so fishing was a bit hard to do, have been a local to Onslow for the last 2 years and have never been over to the Island, now our fishing adventures will be a lot shorter, recommend for both locals...

Had a great day out bottom bouncing and a bit of trolling around the back of Thevenard Island with a few mates. Simon from Mackeral Islands looked after us for the day and made sure we were getting the most out of it. Plenty of water and food was available so we weren't going hungry or thirsty. Plenty of Spaniards,... More

This was our first trip to Thevenard Island for our annual fishing trip. The staff were amazingly flexible in accommodating guests needs to ensure they had a positive experience of the accommodation. the chalets were all new and fresh with new appliances. The fishing was great and mingling with the other guests was enjoyable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Enjoy an idyllic holiday without the distractions of life’s bustle on one of two spectacular islands. Located 20 minutes from Onslow and only 100km North of Exmouth, a holiday or day trip to the Mackerel Islands provides a wilderness-style experience boasting world–class fishing, diving, snorkelling, swimming, boating, nature watching and relaxation in protected, calm waters. Two of the ten islands – Thevenard Island and Direction Island – offer accommodation and access to an extraordinary experience, where rugged adventure meets isolation at its most splendid. Overlooking the mooring area and swimming bay on Thevenard Island are 13 self–contained, air-conditioned, beachfront cabins (sleeping
 2 – 10 people) with all the comforts of everyday living. Your cabin’s shaded outdoor entertaining area is perfect for taking in spectacular sunrises and for watching the local wildlife after a day’s fishing, diving and exploring. A short walk from the beach is Club Thevenard, a 34-room village built around a pool and BBQ area. It offers single or twin rooms complete with ensuite, air-conditioning and all the essentials for up to 50 people. Or, if you’d prefer an island all to yourself, Direction Island may just be the ideal getaway for you. Direction Island accommodation offers a unique and distinctly Western Australian island experience. Located 11 kilometres off WA’s stunning Pilbara coast and nestled within its own coral reef among the spectacular waters of the Mackerel Islands, you can play castaway with up to 8 people on this rustic little island gem. Accessible by charter boat or private vessel, accommodation on Direction Island is a singular, self-contained A-frame beach cabin with simple home comforts that enhance the opportunity to soak up the beauty of untouched nature, reconnect with family and friends, and truly unravel from life’s bustle. ... more   less
