Tom Price

At 747 metres, Tom Price is the highest town in Western Australia!

Named after Thomas Moore Price, the vice-president of the giant United States steel company Kaiser Steel, Price was one of the main supporters of the Pilbara region in the early 1960s.

The most prominent feature of Tom Price is the peak known as Mt Nameless (1,128 metres) or Jurndamurneh to the local Aboriginal people, meaning ‘wallabies live near here’. Its summit is accessed along a four-wheel drive track, and it is also possible to hike to the summit for amazing views of the local landscapes. 

Discover the natural wonders of nearby Karijini National Park. Take a tour of the Pilbara Iron Ore Mine. Or pack a picnic and head out to Kings Lake - a popular recreational area located in a natural bush setting with barbeques and gazebos.

Visit King’s Lake for a barbeque or picnic or check out the massive Rio Tinto Iron Ore Mine on an organised tour.

The town offers a caravan park and hotel/motel as accommodation options.
