The Pilbara is a region of contrasts with many natural attractions to explore.
With months of predictable warm weather and clear blue skies, the region beckons travellers to experience the timeless beauty of the Australian landscape. Home to island reserves, a marine park and stunning beaches, the Pilbara offers world-class diving, snorkelling and fishing with amazing marine diversity.
If you are heading to the Pilbara, be sure to visit one or all of these places at Australia's North West.
Remote area travel
Australia's North West is remote - many parks are not accessible by conventional road vehicle, and some places cannot be reached overland in any vehicle.
If you don't have a four-wheel drive or don't want to drive here, there are a number of companies in the regional centres that rent them. If you travel independently make sure you're familiar with all the advice and references for further information in Know before you go section. Away from parks and main roads, you may need the permission of traditional owners or pastoral station managers for access.
There are a number of companies licensed to offer tours by four-wheel drive, air and boat in the parks of the Pilbara.
The potentially lethal box jellyfish and irukandji are found along the Pilbara coast. Although they can be present all year round they are most prevalent from November until April. If you do swim, snorkel or dive wear a full-length stinger suit and if you are stung, douse liberally with vinegar and seek urgent medical advice.
Commercial operators are licensed to provide a range of tours including nature and sightseeing tours. Search for tours at Tourism Western Australia.
