Welcome to the

Wedge Community

Wedge Island is located north of Lancelin and south of Cervantes on the Western Australian coast some 180 km north of Perth. The first shacks were built at Wedge in the 1930s. The settlement is now home to approximately 350 beach shacks which were built on Crown land at Wedge Island and Grey settlements between the 1950s and 1980s by fishermen and pastoralists.

These shacks have been home to WA holiday makers for the past 70 years who have visited the area to enjoy the pristine beaches and engage in a variety of activities including four wheel driving, sand boarding, surfing, kitesurfing, fishing, swimming and snorkelling.

Due to it’s previously remote location a strong sense of community has developed amongst the inhabitants and regular visitors to Wedge Island. The community has autonomously and democratically addressed the many issues a community has to face to survive in such a remote location. Issues such as harvesting water and power, protection from the elements, first aid and fire-fighting to name a few.

The community is strongly committed to protecting the wildlife, natural fauna and local environment and preserving the natural beauty of Wedge for future generations of West Australians to enjoy in the years to come.

Wedge Island lies at the start of Australia’s Coral Coast , which stretches along 1,100km of breathtaking coastline from north of Lancelin, two hours north of Perth to the World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef. Australia’s Coral Coast is a boundless marine wonderland with open skies and otherworldly landscapes tied together by the Coral Coast Highway – one of the greatest road trips on earth.

The island itself lies within the Turquoise Coast islands nature reserve group, a chain of some 40 islands.
