Thoroughly recommend Shine Aviation for scenic flights over the Abrolhos islands . From booking to completion it was effortless. Such a highlight of our trip was the pink lake I have driven past many times but from the air you will see all the other colours its an amassing site.
Our pilot George was just great Wonderful flight out to the islands , the commentary was world class . The Batavia history and the story of the Abrolhos. is put into perspective what a horror story it actually was. We even seen whales on the way out. 10 out of 10 A must for ALL Thanks all at Shine Aviation..

We did the Abrolhos Flyover with morning tea last Sunday. Our pilot was George, the man with many hats as he flew the plane, gave a very interesting commentary & served morning tea! Highly recommended this trip, beautiful scenery, whales everywhere, saw mantas & dugong. Fascinating to see where the Batavia sank, the stories of mutiny, murder & mayhem. They did it tough in the old days. Thankyou George, a top morning!!

Thoroughly recommend Shine Aviation for any scenic or charter flights around the area. From booking to completion it was effortless. Such a highlight of our trip.
Our pilot George was just lovely and great company. Wonderful flight north overland to the Murchison, over the gorges, Kalbarri after the cyclone, Zuytdorp coastline, pink lake and then a few hours on East Wallaby island. Yummy lunch, then back to Geraldton. Having read the Batavia books, my husband was really invested in the history of the Abrolhos. It put it all into perspective what a horror story it actually was. Hope there is a movie some day. Thank George.
