ABOUT THE NEWMAN!

Newman is the largest town located within the Shire of East Pilbara.  It is a modern mining town that has enjoyed an amazing revitalisation over the past decade, making it one of the key cities in the Pilbara.  It is currently home to more than 5,500 people who enjoy the benefits of this modern hub.  If prospecting is your passion, then this is a great destination being rich in minerals.  Nullagine was the site of Australia’s first diamond discovery and was a thriving town during the gold rush period of the 1880s.  Remnants of that bygone era are still evident in the region.  Marble Bar has a reputation for being Australia’s hottest town and is the gateway for the exploration of areas such as Coppins Gap, Kittys Gap, as well as Doolena and Carawine gorges.  Karlamilyi National Park formerly Rudall River National Park, is rich in Aboriginal culture and has an abundance of wildlife.  At 1,283,706 hectares, it is the largest national park in Western Australia, and one of the largest in the world.  It is also one of the most remote places in the world, situated just 250 kilometres north-east of Newman.

At the northernmost point is the pristine coastal area of Cape Keraudren. This 4,800-hectare reserve offers breathtaking coastal views, as well as fabulous crabbing and fishing. It’s a must-see if you enjoy day-trips or camping.  The Canning Stock Route, a favourite amongst serious four-wheel drive travellers, runs for approximately 500 kilometres, from north to south, through the eastern part of the Shire’s boundary.  The area is abundant with plants and wildlife and offers some of the best night-sky viewing platforms in the country.  Indigenous artwork in its original state is dotted throughout the area, providing an array of opportunities for the adventurer or day-tripper.

Newman is the heart of the Pilbara and it beats loudly and powerfully in this unforgettable land – we can’t wait to see you here!
