The Pilbara has some amazing scenery and camping areas. From the reasonably accessible 40 Mile beach, Cossack and Miaree Pool to the more challenging Karijini and Burrup Peninsula, there is a lot of beauty in this area of Australia on offer. N.B. you will require a fully equipped Four Wheel Drive in order to enjoy these areas
You must be sure to follow the law and rules when exploring these areas. Always stick to the designated tracks. If you are unsure, contact the local tourist centre as there are some tracks that require a permit before you are allowed to access them otherwise you may incur a fine, there are also many tracks that are privately owned.
Never leave any of your rubbish behind as it has a negative impact on this beautiful land and we all want to enjoy these areas for a long time to come.
You must also be wary of the summer months and the heat that it brings as well as the winter months if you are used to cooler climates. Be sure to always be carrying an adequate water supply for every occupant of the vehicle as well as spare waste water for emergency’s such as an overheating vehicle etc. Always make sure there is someone who knows where you are headed and for how long. As it is a very vast space with long distances between towns, you should never differ from the arranged plans as accidents happen and things can go wrong.
What is in your “Grab and Go” pack should be thought out and planned based on your personal needs.
As long as everyone is courteous to the land, sticks to the designated tracks, takes their rubbish home and leaves nothing behind that could negatively impact the environment then we can all ensure that the Pilbara will be well looked after for generations to come
