Welcome to the Pilbara

After leaving Eighty Mile Beach we decided to drive to Port Hedland and spend the night there. It was a larger town than we imagined, we then found out that it’s the second largest town in the Pilbara.


Always good when you arrive in town!

The main industries in Port Hedland are iron ore processing and export and salt production and other minerals. This picture below is of the big salt mine on the way into town.

After dark we also took a drive out to the water to see the lights of all the ships parked up offshore, again it was like a mini city out there.

On our way from Port Hedland to Karratha we passed a little pub in the middle of nowhere. We stopped in for a coffee and look around and to have a chat with the friendly birds that were out the back. George was even brave enough to play with the galah!
