Gourmet Island Escape (Dirk Hartog Island)
Think platters of Shark Bay prawns, plump scallops, juicy snow crabs, stiff fresh whiting and pink snapper. Think an island paradise off the Coral Coast, ready to welcome foodies and nature-lovers. Think you’d like to come along too? Well, get
ready to experience one of Australia’s more remote gourmet experiences on Dirk Hartog Island this August. Discovered in 1616, the island is one of the Coral Coast’s largely undiscovered gems, and home to one of Australia’s premier eco-tourism
destinations. With fresh fruit and vegetable flown in from nearby Carnarvon, visitors will feast on the freshest seafood and gourmet cuisine, produced by Russell Blaikie and George Cooper, some of the country’s leading chefs, in an authentic beachfront to ocean to plate experience.
Why not . . . If you’ve got a taste for the island life, why not book a stay at the rustic Eco Lodge, right on the edge of the Shark Bay World Heritage Area. The six-guest rooms and private villa blend simple elegance with a luxe twist, and of course giving
those stunning ocean views a starring role.
