Dorre Island

Dorre Island is one of three islands that make up the Bernier and Dorre Island Nature Reserve in the Shark Bay World Heritage area in Western Australia. The island is named after Peter Dorre, the pilot of a Dutch vessel, the Eendracht, in 1616.

It was, with Bernier Island, a lock hospital location in the early 1900s.

Daisy Bates was given the name Kabbarli (grandmother) at Dorre Island.

It is located at the north-western corner of the World Heritage area, almost due west of Carnarvon, Western Australia. It is separated from Bernier Island to its north by a 0.5 km gap with a depth of 4 m.

Cape St Cricq is the southernmost point, while Cape Boullanger is the northernmost point of the Island.

Due to its location south of Bernier, and on the northern side of the opening into Shark Bay where Cape Inscription on Dirk Hartog Island lies to the south, some wrecks and remains have been found.

Country - Australia

Flag of Australia
Australia, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is a sovereign country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania and numerous smaller islands. It is the largest country in Oceania and the world's sixth-largest country by total area. The neighbouring countries are Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and East Timor to the north; the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu to the north-east; and New Zealand to the south-east. The population of million is highly urbanised and heavily concentrated on the eastern seaboard. Australia's capital is Canberra, and its largest city is Sydney. The country's other major metropolitan areas are Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.

Australia was inhabited by indigenous Australians for about 60,000 years before the first British settlement in the late 18th century. It is documented that Aborigines spoke languages that can be classified into about 250 groups. After the European exploration of the continent by Dutch explorers in 1606, who named it New Holland, Australia's eastern half was claimed by Great Britain in 1770 and initially settled through penal transportation to the colony of New South Wales from 26 January 1788, a date which became Australia's national day. The population grew steadily in subsequent decades, and by the 1850s most of the continent had been explored and an additional five self-governing crown colonies established. On 1 January 1901, the six colonies federated, forming the Commonwealth of Australia. Australia has since maintained a stable liberal democratic political system that functions as a federal parliamentary constitutional monarchy, comprising six states and ten territories.
