1. Abrolhos Island Discovery Tour
Begin the morning by flying over the town of Kalbarri, then along the majestic coastal cliffs that tower over Gantheume Bay, with their lovely red sedimentary rock colors. The coastal cliffs have been over 400 million years in the making and were once part of an ancient coral reef system. The Abrolhos Islands is a chain of 122 islands and associated coral reefs, in the Indian Ocean approximately 65 kilometers (about 40 miles) off the west coast of Australia. It is the southernmost true coral reef in the Indian Ocean, one of the highest latitude reef systems in the world and one of the most important seabird breeding sites. Composed of three groups of 40 islands each, the Abrolhos boasts an incredible range of marine life and spectacular coral gardens that are excellent for diving and snorkelling while sea lions, dolphins and migratory whales are often spotted in the area. East Wallabi Island, known for its beautiful coral and turquoise bays, is where the plane lands. From here enjoy a short walk to Turtle Bay where the morning is spent swimming and snorkeling in the protected waters of the coral reef. Morning tea with tea and coffee is included. Discover the island on a nature walk. View the abundant birdlife, neighboring islands and limestone cave formations. Return to Kalbarri flying over the breathtaking coral atolls and the site of the historical Batavia shipwreck.
