Come on a trip of a lifetime to beautiful Dirk Hartog Island.
Discovered over 400 years ago it is still an isolated remote place to go camping and to explore.
Start the journey camped at Steep Point, next day catch the barge across to the island then we are off on a 10 day adventure. Exploring the beaches, cliffs, blow holes, sand dunes and loads more.
Watch the last sunset in the country as you stand on massive cliffs overlooking the Indian Ocean at the most western point in Australia.
Beautiful bays of crystal blue water full of aquatic life. Vast Dune systems and endless views of the ocean and coastline.
We will be camping at a couple of locations on the top end of the island
and camping at the Homestead campgrounds for our last night on the island.
There is great fishing from the cliffs, beaches and rock ledges.
Plus the chance of a boarding a local fishing charter right from the campsite to spend the day fishing
the offshore waters of Shark Bay (still being confirmed)
So if your up for an adventure why not tag along and 'Get Lost' on an island adventure.

Roof top tinnies have been popular in the past.
