The Shire of East Pilbara is gearing up for the tourist season by creating a temporary camping site at Boomerang Oval in Newman and reopening  Nullagine Caravan Park following the closures of camping sites in March due to COVID-19.


The Shire of East Pilbara congratulates Senior Martu law man, Muuki Taylor, along with Sue Davenport and Peter Johnson, who each received Order of Australia Medals (OAM) for their extraordinary commitment to the Martu people of the Western Desert, as part of the recent Queen’s Birthday Honour List.


The Shire of East Pilbara and Martumili Artists wish to advise that the Martumili Gallery (located within the East Pilbara Arts Centre) will be re-opened to the public as from Monday 15 June. In accordance with WA COVID safety requirements and restrictions.
