From the gorges carved over billions of years at Karijini National Park to the more than one million examples of rock art on the Burrup Peninsula, to the 42 islands and islets of the Dampier Peninsula, The natural attractions in the Pilbara are on an epic scale.

    This region of Western Australia is not only renowned for its stunning landscapes but for its characters that embody the outback spirit that is so prevalent in this part of the world.

    Four Australians who have a deep passion for the Pilbara showcase their connection to the landscape through 60 second videos.

    Australia’s North West Tourism CEO Glen Chidlow said the compilation video of all had already racked up 300,000 views on social media.

    “The videos resonate with audiences as meeting people when travelling in the Pilbara is as much a part of the holiday experience as the incredible scenery you travel through,” said Mr Chidlow.

    “Epic Pilbara People, Pete, Marnie, Clinton and Robin relay in their own words, how they came to fall in love with this remote, stunning landscape,” he said.

    “Each of them has a different story to tell.  Pete has been  canyoning in Karijini’s gorges more than 600 times, Marnie enjoyed childhood adventures on an island leased by her father and his friends, Robin transplanted from Texas for a rugged cowboy and now runs a half million acre cattle station, and Clinton’s shares his cultural connection  through stories of a Dreamtime landscape,” said Glen.

    To coincide with the campaign Australia’s North West Tourism is giving away two return flights from the nearest Australian capital city to Paraburdoo, three nights in a deluxe eco tent at Karijini Eco Retreat with continental breakfast and three days car hire.   Entries close 11.59pm 29 June 2017
