  • Magical and quite place. The shade-house and the ocean view hides are very good. Seabirds are amazing for numbers of species present, but high winds and tides may mean you need to stay over a few days.
  • Beautiful place with lots of wildlife! Truly spectacular with the red sand floawinf into the bright blue ocean. Only downside is the fact that it's not really accessable without a 4wd.
  • Fascinating place with dedicated and knowledgeable guides.
  • Cooked our own breakfast in their commercial style camp kitchen. Lots of local birds on display as we were eating our breakfast
  • Check out the birds with the experts.
