Since the discovery of iron ore in the Hamersley Ranges in the 1960s, the Pilbara region has become pivotal to Western Australia's economy.


The Pilbara region offers rugged mountain ranges with volumes of iron ore, fabulous coastal waters that includes the famous Ningaloo Reef, several great fishing and camping locations.


Campers are encouraged to use various designated camping sites spotted in the region with special consideration to the protection and care of all natural and cultural heritage places.
