What to say about Port Hedland. Not the most charming place in the world that's for sure. Stayed there for one night at the noisiest campground ever. It was a battle of noise between airplanes, trains and trucks! We caught up with an old friend from Perth who now works there. The rent here is exorbitant - $2500 a week for a 4bdr home, even just flat sharing will set you back $450 pw for a room!
The road between Karratha and Port Hedland was full of roadtrains carrying mostly dongers or mining equipment. We had to pull over several times to let some of these wide loads pass.
