Pilbara vista …

The Pilbara region in Western Australia is the heart of the mining region that provides the majority of Australia’s export income, mostly iron ore and gas, but also a myriad of other smaller metal producers including gold and manganese. That makes a great pictorial backdrop when visiting this region.

At the heart is the old, small town of Nullagine, pictured below the aptly named Conglomerate Hotel, along with surrounding ranges, gorges, valleys and gravel plains covered in Spinifex grass. Click to zoom.
