Life & Style Weekend - - MAGAZINE | ESCAPE -

Whether you go for a day or choose a longer stay, Dirk Hartog Is­land is a na­ture-lover’s par­adise ac­cessed by 4WD from Steep Point, or by boat or plane.

Be at one with wildlife as you view the nest­ing and hatch­ing log­ger­head tur­tles at Tur­tle Bay, wit­ness schools of ner­vous sharks at Surf Point, go whale watch­ing, or take a ma­rine sa­fari. Visit the pink Rose Lake, get ad­ven­tur­ous on one of the is­land’s many walks or 4WD tracks, cool down at the blow holes, visit the site of the first Euro­pean land­ing on the west coast, and swim, snorkel, kayak or pad­dle­board in the pris­tine wa­ters.

Half and full-day tours are avail­able and the is­land of­fers a num­ber of ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tions. www.dirkhar­t­o­g­is­land.com
