Abrolhos Island Discovery Tour
The spectacular Abrolhos Islands flight offers scope as well as variety.
As Kalbarri Scenic Flight’s premier excursion, this tour offers you the opportunity to land in the famous Abrolhos Islands and appreciate the vast range of sights and experiences which this exciting location has to offer.
An early morning scenic flight past the coastal cliffs and out across the ocean allows us to take in the full scope of the Abrolhos before landing on East Wallabi Island. After a short stroll to the pure white sand and shallow light blue water of Turtle Beach, we set up camp and enjoy a typically Western Australian morning tea. You then have the option of two distinct Abrolhos experiences. In the summer months, why not take advantage of the opportunity to bathe in the clear, calm water, with the beautiful islands as backdrop? Snorkelling allows you to see a vast array of colourful fish at first hand and view coral of incomparable beauty and diversity.
For those who prefer a nature trail, and in the cooler months of autumn and winter, East Wallabi provides the invigorating opportunity to walk across the Island and explore the rich diversity of varying vegetation and see friendly wallabies at first hand. A highlight is to visit the Ospreys nest, Ospreys nest on the Abrolhos each year, and can often be seen flying low over the islands.
At the most Eastern point of the island, we look across towards the mainland and explore an area of limestone where a massive build-up of shells has been created by circling gulls. The Abrolhos is a haven of wildlife with everything that unspoiled Nature has to offer. The Discovery Tour provides a unique chance to experience sights and sounds in an environment which few visitors to Western Australia have had the opportunity to experience.
Refreshments are included in your tour, and there are options to upgrade to a romantic lunch for two Thursday through to Monday– prices upon application. We leave Turtle Beach for the short walk back to the aircraft, and after overflying the Abrolhos Island and pointing out the scarred reef where the Batavia wreck came to rest, we head back to Kalbarri, looking for whales in season.
A flight over the Pink Lake can be added to this tour - please click here for pricing.
