Australia’s North West
A visit to Australia’s North West will take you through some of the world’s most amazing untouched wilderness areas, giving you a real Australian outback experience.
Covering over one million square kilometres, North West Australia is split into two areas of breathtaking natural beauty, the Pilbara and Kimberley regions. The ancient landscapes of these two regions are a spectacular contrast of rugged ranges, stunning gorges, pristine sandy beaches and untouched islands and reefs. They’re also home to wildlife, birdlife and plant species you won’t find anywhere else on the planet.
To plan your next trip through the Pilbara, and up into the Kimberley, visit the following websites and Visitor Centres to make sure you don’t miss a thing.

Welcome Rest Stops
Taking a break on your driving adventure is now a lot more appealing, with the completion of a network of new Welcome Rest Stops across the region.
These striking rest stops celebrate the Indigenous cultures of their location, through original artworks immortalised in the steel canopies. They cast interesting shadows by day, and solar-powered lighting plays through them after dark. In addition to shelter and seating, most stops offer toilet facilities, and many also provide free WiFi hotspots so you can catch up with friends, or plan the next leg of your trip.
For more information about the Welcome Rest Stops locations and artwork visit www.welcomereststops.com
Selected Welcome Rest Stops provide free WiFi hotspots allowing you to check in with friends and family or plan the next part of your journey.
Free WiFi is also available in Paraburdoo, at the library and Shire office, as well as in Tom Price at the Visitor Centre and library.
