Port Hedland sits at the heart of a region that's as rich in Indigenous culture and history as it is natural wonders, including the spectacle of the Staircase to the Moon.
To take the direct route, you can fly to Port Hedland from Perth in just over two hours. Or to make the journey half of the adventure, why not fly to Broome or Exmouth and discover the mysteries of local legends driving the Warlu Way interpretive trail.
Following the path of the warlu, or Dreamtime sea serpent, the Warlu Way traverses 2,480 kilometre through the ancient landscapes of the Pilbara and Kimberley. From sapphire seas to lush oases and soaring gorges to ancient Aboriginal art, it will take you back to the Dreamtime when the warlu emerged from the sea and travelled through the red heart of the outback, forming magnificent waterways as he moved.
While you're in Port Hedland, be sure to enjoy another natural spectacle that's unique to the North West - the Staircase to the Moon. Best viewed from Cooke Point between March and October, this natural phenomenon occurs when the full moon rises over the exposed mudflats at extremely low tide, creating the optical illusion of a staircase reaching to the moon.
