About The Locations

Two amazing sunset walks through the spectacular landscapes of  two world class national parks.

See this saltwater paradise through Aboriginal eyes to get a cultural immersion and local perspective on what these places of significance mean to local Nhanda and Malgana People. Meander your way through diverse landscapes from rolling red sand dunes from the desert to white sandy beaches in Wulyibidi (Francois Peron) to majestic rugged coastal limestone cliffs of Wirruwana (Dirk Hartog Island). Both national parks were once active pastoral stations.  However, today they are both under world renowned conservation projects - Project Eden and Return to 1616. Learn about the projects and how this Country is healing through conservation.
