The Islands of OZ- raw, moody, beautiful, dramatic and totally unique to Australia. Summersite is embarking on a lifestyle film and photo odyssey exploring our rare and magnificent islands of OZ. This is Rottnest Island with Billabong surfers Ellie Jean Coffey and Flick Palmateer.
"We heard whispers of Rottnest Island. A raw, windswept landscape fringed by white sand beaches lapped by turquoise waters of the indian ocean, limestone reefs that are a haven for marine life and some of the best surfing and consistent breaks in Western Australia. We had to see it for ourselves so when Summersite invited us along, flights were booked and bags were packed. We set out each morning before the sun rose with boards strapped to our bikes and explored Rottnest in all its splendour." - Billabong's Alesha Saliba.
The Islands of OZ
Australia - the island - is famous for being a remote and rugged beauty... but what about the islands that inhabit Australia’s coastline?
Without question our surrounding islands are some of the most unique on the planet - raw, moody, beautiful and dramatic. White sandy beaches, tropical reefs and fish, rugged wind blown landscapes, shipwrecks, war memorials, and island vibes totally unique to Australia.
Naturally these are quintessential Aussie holiday lifestyle locations inclusive of surfing, boating, diving, bicycle riding, hiking and of course, beach bronzing...without the crowd. Each unique Island has its own distinct characteristics.
