Barrow Island

Barrow Island is located to the north of Onslow and to the west of Karratha in Western Australia’s northwest.

The island became a nature reserve in 1910 after the island’s rich array of flora and fauna was recognised.

Barrow Island is also rich in oil and is Australia’s largest onshore oilfield. Strict environmental policies have enabled mining to coexist with the island’s status as a nature reserve.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
