The Pilbara region takes in some of Australia's most beautiful country. From rugged mountain ranges supplying mining companies with enormous volumes of 'iron ore' to the pristine coastal waters of Ningaloo Reef and fabulous fishing locations. Deceptive as all this may be, the Pilbara is still a very remote area criss-crossed with roads and tracks from stations, mining, townships and national parks. Karijini NP and Millstream-Chichester NP offer incredible natural formations that need to be seen to be believed. The mining open cuts at Newman and Tom Price are staggering and offer a constant reminder of this huge industry via relentless iron ore trains, towing 236 trucks at 116 tons each, pulled by three powerful locomotives rolling 24/7. It is an ancient landscape, demanding but amazing, with plenty of blue skies and warm days. A mecca for tourists in all directions with great camping locations.
