Whether it's fishing, turtle watching, bird watching or just plain relaxing, the Mackerel Islands in Western Australia's northwest Pilbara Coastal region is the ideal destination for the adventurous or the weary.
The pristine waters are home to world-class coral reefs that offer a spectacular array of colourful reef fish and coral formations - a diver's / snorkeller's paradise. And the fishing action is up there with some of the worlds best. Whether you like to fish off the beach or out on the ocean, you won't be disappointed with the smorgasbord of five-star species.
Of the 10 islands that make up the Mackerels group, two provide accommodation - Thevenard Island and Direction Island. The landscape is very much north Western Australian, abounding with vegetation typical of the region. The casual nature of the Mackerel Islands provides an ideal escape for singles, couples, families and groups.
Fishing for sport or catching a meal, snorkelling or diving for crayfish. Relaxing along the beaches, exploring and discovering rare native island inhabitants, viewing exotic shells, marvelling at the endless sun and blue skies and eating fresh fish to your heart's content – Why Wait?
