Begin the morning by flying over the city of Geraldton to the Abrolhos Islands.

The Abrolhos Islands are a chain of 122 islands and associated coral reefs in the Indian Ocean, approximately 65 kilometres off the west coast of Australia. It is the southernmost true coral reef in the Indian Ocean, one of the highest latitude reef systems in the world and one of the most important seabird breeding sites.

Composed of three groups of 40 islands each, The Abrolhos boasts an incredible range of marine life and spectacular coral gardens that are excellent for diving and snorkelling while sea lions, dolphins and migratory whales are often spotted in the area.

We overfly the Pelsaert Group before heading North to the Wallabi Group, landing on East Wallabi Island, known for its beautiful coral and turquoise bays where a delicious afternoon tea with tea and coffee is served (included).
