See the fully restored locomotives from the BHP Iron Ore railway at the Don Rhodes Mining Museum in Port Hedland. Be in awe of the ingenuity of the road, rail and transport technology which facilitated the significant industrial growth in the East Pilbara during the last century.
The Don Rhodes Mining and Transport Museum is an open air museum which pays tribute to the pastoral, railway, manganese and iron ore industries. Examine the historically significant displays as you read informative signs providing in depth information about the uses and development of the items on display.
Sit and rest on the provided seating under shade to reflect on the giant machines that opened up the Pilbara. Pack a picnic or make use of the barbeque facilities provided.
Port Hedland is a two or three day drive north of Perth, and is a popular stop off on the way to Broome.
