Dirk Hartog Island 4WD Tour
Experience the natural beauty of one of Australia’s most historic and pristine attractions
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 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!
Your day starts at 8:00am at Denham Jetty where you will be transferred to Dirk Hartog Island Homestead on our comfortable boat Woomerangee. By 9:15 you will be enjoying a delicious morning tea at the Homestead as well as a tour of the historic shearing shed.
