THE ABROLHOS ISLANDS
Situated in the southern stream of the Leeuwin, the Houtman Abrolhos Islands National Park have a unique ecosystem that is home to some of the world’s most important wildlife. 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 Eco Abrolhos is a 35m x 12m catamaran that has 4 deck levels with a huge passenger to floor space ratio. Accommodation is for up to 32 guests in 17 twin share cabins, all with private en-suites. It is the vessel that is used for the Kimberley 13 day tours.
There is a large dining and lounge area with a saloon bar and a top deck which supplies 360 degree views of The Abrolhos Islands. The deck has covered and open areas, a central bar and slide opening weather screens on 3 sides. This is also the place to sit on a stool and overlook the bow as the Eco travels along, whether it be whale and dolphin watching or passing the stunning coral reefs and sandy beaches. Alternatively relax on the sun lounges with a book, enjoy alfresco dining, lie back on the couch and enjoy the surroundings or sip champagne at sunset whilst watching The Abrolhos Islands come alive with all its colour and glory!
