Discover rocky canyons with emerald plunge pools, white sandy beaches on the 42 secluded islands of the Dampier Archipelago, pristine underwater coral gardens, national parks and prehistoric rock engravings.

There's a diversity of wildlife including tiny flatback turtles that you won't find anywhere else in the world except at the Eighty Mile Beach.

The Pilbara is home to the hottest town in Australia – Marble Bar, as well as the highest town above sea level in WA – Tom Price.
