Situated within the Shark Bay World Heritage Area, Dirk Hartog Island Eco Lodge is one of Australia’s emerging nature based tourism destinations.
The island is the site of the first European landing on Western Australian soil in 1616 by Dutch sea Captain Dirk Hartog. Rugged cliffs, tranquil beaches, amazing landscapes and unique fauna make up its natural beauty.
The turquoise waters surrounding the island offer experiences for all visitors. Dugongs, loggerhead turtles, humpback whales, tiger sharks, giant manta rays and whale sharks all visit this marine park.
Embracing the dramatic beauty of the Shark Bay World Heritage Area, the Eco Lodge is a rustic retreat where guests can ‘Escape and Discover’. The six guest rooms and private villa blend simple elegance with luxury and comfort, offering stunning ocean views. The Eco Lodge is a destination in which to relax and reconnect with yourself, family and environment.
Denham, the gateway to Dirk Hartog Island is approximately 840 kilometres north of Perth and takes about ten hours to drive or two hours to fly to Denham. Transfer from Denham to the island will be arranged upon booking.
