Understand[edit]

The Gascoyne, Mid-West, Pilbara regions are often conflated into just up north where the distances are long between anywhere, and road travel is dangerous due to sleep inducing monotony of the intervening landscape, the dawn and dusk animals on the roads, and the heat.

The Mid-west coast centres on Geraldton, the Gascoyne on Carnarvon and the Pilbara has a number of significant ports and locations on its coast. It is a long coast from Geraldton to Broome, and in many places, there is no easy access to the coast. It is where the towns or resorts are located that the coast is an easy drive.

Get in[edit]

By plane[edit]

Skywest and Qantas connect the region with Perth and Broome. There are airports with scheduled services at Learmonth, between Exmouth and Coral Bay, Carnarvon and Monkey Mia.
