Onslow - Fishing & Crabbing

 

 Western Australia
 

For the fisherpersons among us, there is plenty of opportunity to catch a feed in Onslow. Throw in a line at the groyne or try Four Mile Creek. Cruise the many creek systems in a boat or explore the many islands near Onslow. Visit the Mackerel Islands, often described as a fisherman's paradise. There are 10 islands located 23 kilometres off the coast. Thevenard Island, a six kilometre long coral atoll, boasts perfect white beaches, abundant fish, and spectacular coral for snorkelling.
