The Mackerel Islands are one of Western Australia's best-kept secrets and offer an amazing, off-the-beaten-track experience.
Flights from Perth to Onslow take two hours or the drive north is 1,400 kilometres. The Mackerel Islands are a collection of 10 islands and atolls, two of these welcome guests. You can bring your own boat and hire a mooring or take a transfer service across.
Stay on Thevenard Island in a choice of beachfront cabins and single or double rooms. For the ultimate wilderness escape, rent your own island with a sole beach shack on Direction Island!
Spot sea turtles, dolphins and whales playing in the blue-green waters, snorkel among colourful fish and marine life in the fringing coral reefs, jump on a kayak or stand-up paddle board, hire a boat and cruise around the bay or join their skipper on one of their sensational fishing charters.
As the sun goes down and the night sky lights up with a dusting of silver, you can simply stargaze in awe and breathe in the quietness.
For a holiday full of adventure and relaxation, the Mackerel Islands are the escape you've been looking for.
