Tom Price Travel Course

Exploring Tom Price

Swim in the sparkling blue waters of Olympic standard pools, race across dusty ruts of a motocross track, and climb towering mountains to experience fascinating views across the remarkable landscape of Western Australia, when you visit the traditional mining town of Tom Price. The still-operational mine is a fascinating tour, outshone only by treks through the exciting, yet barren scrubland. In the town’s quiet streets, get a sense of its Aboriginal past in colorful galleries, or enjoy a dip in the Fern Pool, with its cascading waterfall.

Things to see

The city center in Tom Price is far from an urban metropolis. A few simple outback shops consisting of a supermarket, an interesting local art gallery, and an amusing curio store are among the handful of outlets that hug the central streets of this remote town. You’ll find the Tom Price Visitor Centre on the aptly named Central Road. It’s the place to visit to book tours to the area’s main attraction, the Karijini National Park, a sprawling expansive of barren land covered in hardy flora, and towered over by rocky mountain ridges. You can spend whole days exploring this wilderness, swimming in the cool fresh water of Fern Pool, or climbing to the top of the iron-red rocks to gaze out across the landscape. Picturesque waterfalls provide the perfect backdrop for a picnic, and you can pick up a map or guide to the endless gorges that carve their way through this deserted scrubland at the interesting Karijini Visitor Centre. Not far from Tom Price, the Marandoo Mine hides away behind rich, ochre-red walls of a barren mountain pass. To view it, you’ll need to join a designated tour, and after donning hard hats and safety goggles, you’ll be driven through this operational open ore mine to view the inner workings of this profitable, and sometimes dangerous business.

Depending on your choice of accommodation, your amenities will vary, but don’t expect to find any luxury hotels in Tom Price, it’s not that sort of town.

Where to stay

There are few streets in Tom Price, just a small collection of carefully laid out blocks that center on a large, grassed square. Central Road runs right through it, and it’s here you’ll find some discount hotels, sitting in private lots of landscaped grounds, just back from the roadway. Quiet residential streets run away from the town’s recreation area, gently curving loops of dusty tarmac lined with small, family homes and quaint trailers. Eco resorts can be found outside Tom Price, in the stark natural landscape of the Karijini National Park. Sitting in an isolated natural habitat, they are surrounded by leafy trees, winding rivers, and towering red walls of rocky mountains.
