About the Pilbara
The Pilbara region covers an area of 507,896 square kilometres in the North of Western Australia, stretching across the Great Sandy Desert, with the Indian Ocean on the West and the Northern Territory on the East. Boasting a rich and diverse Indigenous cultural heritage, the dry and rugged land is home to some of Earth’s oldest rock formations, over 700 historic Indigenous archaeological sites and 1,000,000 rock engravings. The region offers an abundance of hidden gems – white sandy beaches and islands with untouched coral gardens, National parks Millstream-Chichester, Karlamilyi and Karijini, deep rocky canyons and mountain ranges with cliffs and gorges, and Marble Bar – the hottest town in Australia. The major towns of the region are Port Hedland, Karratha and Newman and the three main ports are Port Hedland, Dampier and Port Walcott.
The Pilbara is known as the mining powerhouse of the state; the engine room of Australia; the centre of Australia’s mining, crude oil and natural gas industries and critical to Australia’s economy. The land is rich in natural resources, minerals such as iron ore which is mined for the production of steel, visible in the red sandy colour of the land. In addition to the immense reserves of natural resources, tourism, agriculture, fishing and aquaculture are all prominent strengths, supporting the growth and economy of the Region.
