Port Hedland International Airport is your all-access pass to some of Australia’s most striking natural wonders and richest Indigenous history. More than just the world’s largest bulk export port, this is one of the few places on Earth where you can witness the Staircase to the Moon, and a top spot for fishing and whale and turtle watching.
Located on the Great Northern Highway, Port Hedland International Airport is approximately seven minutes’ drive from the centre of Port Hedland. Qantas and Virgin operate regular scheduled flights from Perth, Brisbane and Bali, and charter flights connect you to other destinations in Australia’s north, including the spectacular gorges of Karijini National Park.
Taxis and bus charters provide transfers to and from the airport, and car hire car companies operate from the arrivals end of the terminal.
If you’re hiring a car, immerse yourself in the mysteries of Indigenous legends following the Warlu Way through the ancient landscapes of the Pilbara and Kimberley.
Time your visit to catch the best events on nature’s calendar: March-October for The Staircase to the Moon; June-November for whale watching; October-January for turtle nesting; December-March for turtle hatching; and June-August for one of the world’s best wildflower shows.
