The Pilbara of Western Australia


A 3 day outback camping tour in the Pilbara and Karijini National Park, then our stay at Cossack in 2003

The Pilbara is the heart of Western Australia's huge iron ore mining industry. On the drive across the country into the Karijini National Park the landscape is so varied with colours from daybreak to sunset changing as fast as the sun moves across the sky. The heat of the day changes accordingly and when you step down into the gorges the temperature drops but the water may be freezing so hypothermia can be a problem. We camped out under the stars and beside an Aussie icon, the windmill, in sleeping bags that kept us warm at night but had ice on them when we woke in the morning as temperatures drop low after sunset.

Cossack is a very different spot - an historic ghost town located 1,480 km north of Perth and 15 km from Roebourne in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, small, quiet with a feel all of it's own.

We went up to the water tower hill before sunrise and the beauty around us was breathtaking. A little bird was sitting on a post near

us and trilled up the sunrise and it was truly a magic time.

Photos were taken with a Pentax Espio 80.6 with panaramic mode, photos printed at local shop and scanned to computer. Quality is not like digital, but the colours are original.
