The Pilbara offers a wide range of sporting and recreational activities
due to the region's unique climate and geography.
Karratha and Port Hedland are the major regional centres where most activities take place.
The Pilbara climate ranges from tropical to semi-desert, with temperatures sometimes reaching 45c in summer.
