Western Australia

Renowned for its history, natural beauty, spectacular landscapes and fishing,
Dirk Hartog Island is an ‘ark’ for endangered wildlife and a great place for an island adventure.

The most western point of Australia has seen it all, from early explorers to a major sheep station, the island is a melting pot of Australian history.

Come and see this unique World Heritage site and witness firsthand the ‘Return to 1616’ ecological restoration project 
aiming to return the island to how Dirk Hartog discovered it 400 years ago.
