Mackerel Islands are in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.


Of the 10 islands that make up the Mackerels group, two provide accommodation - Thevenard Island and Direction Island. The landscape is very much north Western Australian, abounding with vegetation typical of the region. The casual nature of the Mackerel Islands provides an ideal escape for singles, couples, families and groups

The pristine waters are home to world-class coral reefs that offer a spectacular array of colourful reef fish and coral formations - a diver's/ snorkeller's paradise. And the fishing action is up there with some of the worlds best.
