Unique driver rest stops in the Pilbara
Horizons | June July 2016 | Travel Brief
To encourage drivers to rest, revive and connect while visiting the Pilbara, the Pilbara Regional Council recently installed a network of 18 unique Welcome Rest Stops between Onslow, Karijini National Park and Port Hedland.
Most of the overnight and day-use rest stops offer picnic shade shelter and seating, free WiFi, toilet facilities and solar-powered lighting.
The steel canopies are base on artwork designed by local Indigenous artists and recognises the Indigenous heritage of the Pilbara.
The network follows much of the Warlu Way – a drive itinarey showcasing both inland and coastal scenery and following the path of the Warlu, the Dreamtime sea serpent.
