Pilbara Coast

Rich in natural beauty, resources and history, Pilbara coast line includes the massive iron ore, salt mining and gas shipping operations at Port Hedland, Port Dampier and the North West  Shelf Project. The surrounding red plains were awash with colourful wildflowers such as the lovely Sturt Desert Pea. We visited the Burrup Peninsula’s Hearson’s Cove and Murujuga National Park, exploring aboriginal rock art in the Deep Gorge.  The picturesque historical town of Cossack showcased it’s pearling past. Onslow ended our Pilbara coast experience with some fishing at the Beadon Creek.
