What an excellent place to visit in Esperance! Facilities are fantastic - clean and very family friendly! Great pub grub type food enjoyed by all! Whether it’s a day trip or overnight “glamping” I can’t recommend this place enough!

James Roelofs
The island is pristine and walking paths are easy going. The cafe has wonderful open verandas, feels part of the bush, and overlooks a beautiful bay. The staff are very eager to be helpful, and have a lot of local knowledge.
