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.
