Found in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, Karratha is a fantastic spot for those who travel with a camera. Although you can spend most of your time simply enjoying the Australian desert backdrop, the city itself also has much to offer. Beautiful 19th and 20th century bluestone buildings adorn the streets and take you back in time to the arrival of the first settlers in Pilbara./ The unspoilt shores of Settlers Beach make for a splendid seaside photography session, while the Cossack Heritage Trail that starts nearby can help you learn even more about the regions rich history. Alternatively, you can set out on the Yaburara Heritage Trail to learn more about the Yaburara aboriginal tribe and enjoy some magnificent lookouts. Although its a bit further from town, the Millstream certainly deserves the two hour drive. Here, you can explore the contrasting lush oasis of palms and cool water, while giving your photos a unique touch.
