What Can I See?
Join us for a half day 4WD tour and experience the natural beauty of one of Australia's most historic and pristine attractions—Dirk Hartog Island. Your day includes comfortable boat transfers to and from the island, a delicious homemade morning tea and a 4WD experience you won’t forget!
Dirk Hartog Island was the site of the first recorded European landing on Australian soil. Captain Dirk Hartog, who arrived on the 'Eendracht' on October 25, 1616 announced his arrival by nailing an inscribed pewter plate to a wooden post at the site now known as Cape Inscription. A replica of this plate can be seen at the island's historic Homestead where morning tea will be served.
The island lies within the Shark Bay World Heritage area and is a popular ecotourism destination. It is a haven for marine life including the annual humpback whale migration as well as nesting loggerhead turtles. With little human interaction, the island is one of Shark Bay’s best-known secrets and one of the hardest to reach!
Visit Surf Point to for look sharks schooling in the shallows. View Steep Point across South Passage and the magnificent Zuytdorp cliffs. Watch the Blowholes create rainbows of Indian Ocean spray. Enjoy a delicious homemade morning tea and a tour of the historic Homestead before cruising back to Denham looking out for sharks, turtles, dolphins and dugongs on the way!
