Celebrating 20 Years | 1818 – 2018
In June 1814, 35 year old Louis de Freycinet married 19 year old Rose Pinon. Faced with the prospect of a prolonged separation while he commanded a voyage around the world, Rose joins the ship disguised as a cabin boy.
Located on the east coast of the island, only 20km from the barge landing area, are the Homestead Camp Grounds. Facilities include a camp kitchen with gas BBQ, fire pit, food preparation area and sink – all located 50m from the beach… Did someone say ‘gone fishing’?
Located in the Homestead Bay, only 20km from the barge landing area, is a private Safari Tent Camp Kitchen, decked out with gas BBQ, fire pit, food preparation area and sink. And your own fresh hot water showers and flushing toilets. Just BYO tents, swags and food!
Bring your own four wheel drive (BYO 4WD) to take you to places rarely seen, camp on secluded beaches, catch a fish,
or discover the landing site of Captain Dirk Hartog, the first recorded landing of a European in Western Australia.
Our purpose built landing barge operates 364 days a year from Blackie’s Beach,
Steep Point to Dirk Hartog Island. Bookings are essential.
