Mount Newman

Natural Attractions

For grand views of the Ophthalmia Ranges and surrounding plains, go hiking to the top of Mount Newman just out of the town of Newman in the Pilbara region.

You’ll be amazed by the rich colours of the landscape created by the presence of iron ore which is mined nearby.

Mount Newman is more than a kilometre above sea level and offers a reasonably challenging climb.

There’s a four wheel drive track when ends about half way up the summit.

Give yourself two hours to make the return climb from this point, or another two hours if you’re walking from the highway.

The track to Mount Newman is about half an hour drive north of the town.

You can fly to Newman from Perth or drive there in two days.
