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.
You will need to be fully self sufficient for the 11 days. There is very limited resources once we are on the island.
No fuel. No fresh water and no shops. All rubbish must be taken out, so pack wisely.
You will need to bring all your Food, Drinks, Cooking and Camping equipment..
Drinking Water to cover the 11 days plus any water for other uses (showers, cooking, drinking, washing etc)
Quiet generators are ok. Solar panels are always a great idea. Small tinnies, Canoes/kayaks. Camera.
Bring your Fishing gear. We will have bait and some fishing gear.
The following day out is still being arranged. (Full Details TBA)
A Fishing Charter by one of Denhams best is still being arranged and will be at an additional cost to those who would like to go out for a full day of offshore fishing. All fishing equipment for the day is provided. The charter will pick us up from the island in the morning and arrive back later in the evening. (costs TBA)
This has always been an awesome day out.
