Discovery the Abrolhos Islands

This 5-day tour lets you explore and experience one of the unique parts of Australia, the Abrolhos Islands

Eco Abrolhos 5 Day Tour

A new world just a short journey away! The Abrolhos Islands are some of Australia’s most spectacular and historic islands. They abound with natural wonders, spectacular marine and bird life. The islands are also home to the historic Batavia wreck and what is generally acknowledged as being the earliest European structure in Australia.

Located approximately 70 kilometres from the coastal town of Geraldton, they can be reached via boat or scenic flight. The Abrolhos Islands consist of some 122 islands that are clustered into three main groups; the Wallabi, Pelsaert or Southern Group and Easter Groups.

The 5 Day Abrolhos Islands Tour on board the Eco Abrolhos is the best choice to explore and experience this unique part of Australia!

Abrolhos Island Tour Highlights

Experience Marine Life

The Abrolhos Islands lie in the flowing Leeuwin current which provides the perfect environment for spectacular coral outcrops and marine life. Watch the Australian sea lions frolic in the waters alongside bottle nose dolphins and huge Samson fish.

Sea Bird Sanctuary

The birdlife is amazing with over 90 specific and rare species identified and often cited as the world’s most important sea bird breeding colony. September & October is the peak breeding season and the best time to witness hatchlings.

Whale of a time

Migratory whales, such as the humpback whale, are frequent visitors and can often be seen breaching, and at play in the warm waters and are a site to behold. Whales typically migrate for breeding in the months from May through December.
