Abrolhos Islands

Abrolhos Islands

 Abrolhos, a coral reef archipelago in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Mid West Western Australia.  The Abrolhos Islands and their surrounding coral reef communities form one of Western Australia’s unique marine areas https://www.australiascoralcoast.com/destination/abrolhos-islands

The Islands lie about 60 kilometres west of Geraldton, on the Western Australian coast, and consist of 122 islands clustered into three main groups: the Wallabi Group, Easter Group and Pelsaert Group, which extend from north to south across 100 kilometres of ocean

The beautiful but treacherous reef-surrounded atolls have claimed many wrecks over the centuries. The most notable was the Batavia in 1629 which was wrecked on Morning Reef in the Wallabi group. The Dutch East Indies survivors made it to land, only to face a mutiny. Avid divers can explore the site although the dive is weather dependent and for experienced divers only. Check out the Shipwrecks Gallery at the Museum of Geraldton.

The plane took us to Rat Island..where we had lunch beside a cove where a few boats were moored. Here a skink joined us for a feast of tomato…

The Abrolhos Islands lie 70 kilometres off the coast of Western Australia. Consisting of 122 islands, it’s not just the coral gardens that brighten the area, it’s the painted camps that provide a colourful contrast to the white washed coral outcrops.

The islands remain one of the most unique marine ecosystem in the world. Lying in the path of the Leeuwin current which maintains water temperatures between 18-26 degrees provides the perfect breeding ground for many marine species and rare birds.
