SATURDAY 10 JULY KARRATHA
We did a food shop in the morning – tedious but necessary. Refuelled – $1.08cpl.
Drove out to Dampier – the port for the export of iron ore from the inland Pilbara.
Had intended to take M to the processing plant for offshore gas, on the Burrup Peninsula, but the Visitor Centre we’d intended to visit was shut.
We drove out along the rough track on the Peninsula for some way and had a good view back over the gas loading port.
Drove around Dampier town for a look.
Went back to Karratha in time to get the Weekend Australian, which came in on a late plane.
