Air Date: 30 May 2021

The Warlu Way is said to reveal the mysteries of the Warlu ‘sea serpent’ and other Indigenous legends. Trev explores some of the most iconic destinations along this significant trail.

  • The Warlu way runs north from the central-southern edge of the Pilbara out to the coast and north to the new East Pilbara Geoheritage trail.
  • Pardoo Roadhouse and Tavern is located approximately 30km north of the Pardoo station turn off.
  • The Warlu Way journey is 2,480km long in total.
  • The cretaceous Mesas are made up of 2950-million-year-old granite. This forms the orange rock base.
  • The flat cap rock on the top is estimated to be approximately 146 million years old, formed back in cretaceous times.
  • The De Grey River is located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia and is one of the most iconic destinations along the Warlu Way.
  • To aid travellers on their journey a new smartphone app is launching in May 2021 to provide GPS triggered directions and interpretative information to self-drive the Pilbara’s Warlu Way.
  • The app will be free to download and doesn’t need an internet connection to work.
