This morning we popped into Port Hedland on our way south. Port Hedland is a very industrious town and every second person we saw on the roads, in the shops, driving 4WDs were wearing some sort of a mining uniform or work clothing. Also, everywhere here is covered in red dust, it was all over the van inside and out by the time we left! The dock here handles the iron ore that is mined at Newman nearby and is the exporting point for it, exporting more tonnage than any other Australian port. We took a wander around town before having some lunch by the port.
After checking out the port we were back on the road. We decided to park up for the night at Karratha Roadhouse
