The three mains islands that we visit are Garden Island,
Carnac Island and the local’s favourite holiday
destination - Rottnest Island.
With numerous secluded bays of
crystal clear turquoise water the island offers a huge range of water activities
including swimming, fishing, surfing, diving, beach combing and snorkeling.
It’s no surprise that Rottnest Island is
one of Western Australia’s most popular holiday destinations all year round.
Captain James Stirling first landed on Garden Island in
1827 and founded the first European Settlement in Western
Australia. The island is now home to HMAS Stirling Naval
Base. Access to the Island is only by boat and only 2/3
of the island is open to the public. Garden Island has
beautiful beaches and bays and is an ideal location for
swimming, fishing, surfing and sailing. Also, look out
for the native Tammar - a small species of Wallaby that
lives on Garden Island.
Carnac Island is a wildlife reserve. The island is located
less than 10km from Fremantle and enjoys a Mediterranean
style climate. The Leeuwin Current provides a warm body
of water that surrounds the Island. There are many unique
and wonderful species of wildlife regularly encountered
including Sea Lions, Dolphins, Whales, Stingrays and many
species of tropical and sub-tropical fish. Also Sea Eagles,
Albatross and various other species of seabirds.
