Overview
More
The Mackerel Islands are surrounded by the world's most spectacular amusement park: the Indian Ocean. 22 kilometres off the coast of Onslow, Western Australia, the waters here are teeming with a carnival of marine life. A mask and snorkel gives kids unlimited entry to admire the action. For a front row seat, try diving through the riotous colour of the coral gardens. Prefer games of skill? Test your strength above water as you try and haul in a Red Emperor or Spanish Mackerel. We're in the Pilbara's fishiest waters so no one goes home empty handed. On land, the show continues with turtle hatchings and amazing wildlife. The landscape offers a classical north-western Australian experience, abound with vegetation typical of the region. The calm, relaxed nature of the islands provides an ideal escape for singles, couples, families and groups. One has only to step foot onto the islands to experience simultaneous disconnect and reconnect - disconnect from life's bustle and reconnect with those who matter the most.

Was there many years ago before all the latest mods. I used to fish off the point and always got a feed.
