Tom Price

Went on down as far as Mt Tom Price and went on a bus tour of the mine. That was really interesting to see the workings of the mine. It was also iron ore that gets mined there.

Saturday we were back in Port Hedland and spent Sunday with Andrew. We went out to Marble Bar. It was a small town but interesting to see the marble reef as it was called, and the waterhole which attracted some birdlife.

Port Hedland also has a salt mine that goes 24/7 , they harvest the salt from the sea water

That is a mountain of salt, it hardly rains here so it is all out in the open air.
We have moved on to Broome now and spending a few days here. We are doing a flight to the Horizontal falls and the islands tomorrow. Should be a good day.

Will post again when I can, coverage has not been plentiful as we have been free camping a lot of the time. The weather is like summer, today it was 30 degrees when we arrived in Broome although it cools down of a night.


  1. Sounds like you are having a great time traveling about....so far between towns.

  2. Haven't been to Marble Bar yet. Looks interesting. You do look like you are seeing a lot and enjoying yourselves.
