The Pilbara, a region in the north west of Western Australia, covers a vast area of mostly inhospitable land some 510,000 square km in total. A harsh region of the country with huge mineral deposits, haphazard rainfall, prone to cyclonic conditions during the cyclone season between October and March each year.

However the region has a rugged beauty that continuously draws people back to it. Sparse vegetation, massive gorges, large rivers, historic townships, national parks, unspoilt beaches and untouched coastal islands provide a haven for those wanting to get away from it all.

Fishing is also a popular pastime in the region with many varieties found along the coast and rivers. The name Pilbara in fact means mullet in the local aboriginal language.

The main centre of administration is the mining township of Karratha. The region has been a boon to Australia's mineral and gas exports, iron ore, nickel, petrochemicals, and natural gas are all found in abundance in the area. The largest resource project in Australia the North West Shelf gas facility is located here.

Today you can expect to find modern townships and tourist facilities within the towns of Dampier, Karratha, Roebourne, Wickham, and Cossack. National Parks worth a visit are the Karijini and Millstream.
