Our Cursed Island Home – the Houtman Abrolhos Islands

Our Cursed Island Home – the Houtman Abrolhos Islands

“Welcome to the Houtman Abrolhos Islands, girls. They may be cursed, but for a time they will also be home.” – Sirena, Ocean's Gift

Fractured moonlight on the water was the only sign of the reefs on the surface, part of the islands’ curse. Amid all the contrasts, this remained unchanged. – Sirena, Ocean's Gift

122 islands formed from the shallow coral reefs that are some of the furthest from the Equator anywhere in the world. They’re more than 60 km off the coast of Western Australia, so you don’t often see them from the mainland.

Home to millions of sea birds and some amazing fish, as well as land species found nowhere else in the world, the girls of the Ocean’s Gift picked a pretty special place to come ashore.

About the Author

USA Today bestselling author Demelza Carlton has always loved the ocean, but on her first snorkelling trip she found she was afraid of fish.
She has since swum with sea lions, sharks and sea cucumbers and stood on spray-drenched cliffs over a seething sea as a seven-metre cyclonic swell surged in, shattering a shipwreck below.
Sensationalist spin? No - Demelza tends to take a camera with her so she can capture and share the moment later; shipwrecks, sharks and all.
Demelza now lives in Perth, Western Australia, the shark attack capital of the world.
