Located approx 9 nautical miles NNE from Exmouth. There are two islands- North and South. These islands are a very popular location for recreational day use such as snorkelling, diving, swimming and fishing. It is also an important habitat for seabirds and various other flora and fauna. The islands beaches are highly significant to nesting Green and Loggerhead turtles during the months of November to April.

Guidelines have been developed to protect this special area. Written request to camp must be made to the Shire of Exmouth and the Department of Environment and Conversation's Exmouth office. Any proposal to camp on the island for longer than three nights shall be referred to the Shire of Exmouth for approval.
