Eco Credentials

Power: 92% of the island’s power supply is produced from a hybrid Solar Array & Wind powered generators.  A backup generator is required during the winter months when the days are shorter and the winds a light.

Water: The accommodation is supplied water via a solar pump and windmill located 7km away.  The water is an old well developed during the pastoral period.  The water is limited and used sparingly. Drinking water is desalinated from the well water with any reject water used on gardens.

Recycling & Waste: Dirk Hartog Island Eco Lodge has a glass crusher that reduces glass to the size of sand.  This is then used in building products for any developments.  Cans & tin a removed from the island to mainland re-cycling depots in Geraldton.
