The Abrolhos Wallabi Islands were the scene of the infamous Batavia mutiny in 1629. You can dive the wreckage of the Dutch East Indies Trading Ship and view the outline of the hull, fully equipped with cannons and anchors.
The coral formation, density and colours are amazing. The abundant sea life translates to the world’s freshest seafood with Crayfish, Dhufish and Baldchin groper, as well as pelagic species like Spanish Mackerel.
The Batavia shipwreck lies in four to six metres of clear Indian Ocean and is ranked the #1 dive spot in WA. Before heading to the Islands, make sure you pop into the Museum of Geraldton to hear the fascinating yet brutal Batavia story.
