Montebello Islands are a
Fishing Paradise!

Aptly named Montebello which is Italian for “beautiful mountain”, the islands form a conservation park administered by the Western Australian Department of Environment and Conservation. Montebello Islands fishing is extraordinary as is the incredible scenery in this spectacular area.

We fish here June to December

Abrolhos Island fishing
& great surfing, snorkelling,
diving & even bird watching

The Abrolhos are in the stream of the Leeuwin Current which runs from North West Cape at Exmouth, south along the WA coast to Cape Leeuwin where it curls eastward along South Australia and flowing all the way to Tasmania. The current creates a meeting place for tropical and temperate marine life and is the southernmost place where true corals will be found in WA.
