North West Coastal Highway

 

 Western Australia

 

The Highway runs north from Geraldton to just south of Port Hedland. Australia's North West combines the Kimberley and Pilbara regions of Western Australia. Forming a vast area of over 900,000 square kilometres, it is truly one of the last great wilderness areas; hosting a diverse range of unique natural icons. This ancient landscape features rugged ranges, spectacular gorges, mighty river systems, thundering waterfalls and pristine sandy beaches. It is also home to an astonishing variety of wildlife, birdlife and plant species that cannot be found anywhere else on the planet.

"To you, O men, I call, and my voice is to the sons of men. O you simple ones, understand prudence,
and you fools, be of an understanding heart. Listen, for I will speak of excellent things, and from the opening

of my lips will come right things; for my mouth will speak truth; wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
All the words of my mouth are with righteousness; nothing crooked or perverse is in them.
They are all plain to him who understands, and right to those who find knowledge.
Receive my instruction, and not silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold; for wisdom is

better than rubies, and all the things one may desire cannot be compared with her."

Proverbs ch.8  vs.4-11.  The Holy Bible - New King James Version
