Start Your Tom Price Experience

If you’re looking for amazing spots in Tom Price where you can book accommodation for all budgets, indulge in savoury takeaways to great dining experiences, discover captivating attractions, and experience different activities, these are some of the places to visit:

Tom Price

Tom Price is Western Australia’s highest town at 747 metres. A great base to climb Mount Nameless or Jurndamurneh, explore Karijini National Park, or do an iron ore tour.


Named after the vice president of a giant United States steel company, Kaiser Steel. In the early 1960s, Thomas Moore Price was one of the Pilbara region’s prominent supporters.

The town’s most prominent feature is the peak known as Mount Nameless (1,128 metres) or Jurndamurneh to the local Aboriginal people. It means “wallabies live near here”.


Karijini National Park

Situated in North West Australia, north of the Tropic of Capricorn. Travellers can access the park from Karratha, Newman, or Tom Price by sealed and unsealed roads.

It’s all about adventure, exploring ancient rocky tunnels, paddling through crystal-clear waterways and swimming under stunning waterfalls. The best bit? The most incredible scenery is all within your reach.

Mount Nameless

Mount Nameless, known to local Aboriginal people as Jarndunmunha, is located in Tom Price. The peak stands 1,128 metres above sea level. From the lookout, you see great views across the Hammersley Ranges, the township of Tom Price, and the iron ore mining operations.

It’s the second-highest accessible mountain by a four-wheel drive that offers a spectacular mountain view without the hike in Western Australia!

If you prefer to hike to the summit, a walking trail starts from the mountain’s base at the back of the Tom Price Speedway track. Allow 3 hours for the return hike.

Tom Price Visitor Centre

The town’s visitor centre is in the centre of town, located on Central Road. You can find everything about Tom Price and the majestic Millstream Chichester and Karijini National Parks.

Friendly and professional staff will assist visitors with an extensive range of materials. From tourism brochures and maps to permits for the Rio Tinto Private Rail Access Road and other information, the centre can give it to you. They also offer a range of gifts and unique tourism opportunities, including mine site and Karijini day tours.

Millstream Chichester National Park

At Millstream Chichester National Park, immerse yourself in a landscape of water pools, escarpments, rolling hills, and tree-lined rivers. The area covers approximately 200,000 hectares around the heartland of the Yindjibarndi people, the Fortescue River.

This lush oasis of palm-fringed rock pools and deep gorges starkly contrasts the surrounding landscape of rolling spinifex-covered hills and rocky escarpments.

Rail Access Roads Pilbara

The world’s largest private rail network crosses the Pilbara, with over 1,400 km of tracks connecting mines at Tom Price and Pannawonica with the ports at Dampier and Port Lambert. Running alongside the tracks are rail access roads built to allow for maintenance on the railway.
