While the southern half of the country are wrapping themselves in wool, we are embracing the turn of winter with little need for much else than a sarong, towel and some light refreshments when the sun goes down.
Hello winter, you’re welcome!
It’s been a huge month here on and around the islands, having just waved goodbye to the Destination WA crew, who you’ll see with us on the program over the next few weeks if you’re watching.

Additionally, fishing guru Al McGlashan couldn’t believe his eyes when he hit the Mackerels waters with his troops a couple of weeks ago. They caught several 1-metre long Queenfish, however also lost a few to some of the ‘guys in grey suits’… all in good fun and great showmanship for his TV series, Fish’n With Mates, which you’ll see televised in September.

As we head into the WA Day long weekend, our crew are really excited to be hosting our first ever Open Day on Thevenard Island on Saturday 4th June, where we’re offering ferry tickets, kayaks, stand-up-paddle boards, snorkel gear, games and face painting to our visitors free!
If you’re keen to join in and have your own boat, contact Jade or Art to arrange a free mooring for the day (or if you’re happy to drop an anchor, go ahead, but please contact us regardless to let us know you’re coming). Our ferry transfers are already booked out for Saturday, but if you’re in the area and fancy a slice of island life for a day or two, we still have availability for transfers and/or accommodation on Sunday and Monday (activities are only free on Saturday however).
How are you celebrating WA Day? Do you have any suggestions for us? We’d love to know! Feel free to use the comment box below, we’re ‘reel’ people on the other end here, and love to chat. 🙂
Happy WA Day!
