Tom Price, is a mining town in the Pilbara region of Western Australia (WA). It’s the highest town (in WA) at 747 metres or 2.451 ft above sea level and as such, it has been dubbed ‘Top Town in WA’.
This iron ore mining town is under the control of Rio Tinto. Tom Price has a population of roughly 2.721 with an average age of 29, which reflects the relatively young family community that exists there. The town is named after Thomas Moore Price and is the closest town to the Karijini National Park which is awesome!
When we travelled through the Pilbara region last year, we were blessed with a great show of wild flowers. The rich red soil of the area has to be seen to be believed and the wild flowers flourish and grow, despite the dusty, parched terrain. The Pilbara region puts on an amazing wildflower show every spring and special trips are planned for tourists on an annual basis.
Here then, is a peep…
If you’re planning a trip to the northern part of Western Australia, keep the season in mind and you won’t be sorry!
