Dampier - Burrup Peninsula

We travelled out from Karratha towards Dampier along the Burrup Peninsula to see the iron ore loading facilities and the North West Shelf gas pipeline and loading facilities. Note the same red rock piles like we saw in the Chichester Ranges. The companies here wish to expand and they are coming up against strong opposition due to the Peninsula also being home to the most prolific ancient rock engravings (petroglyphs) in the world.
