Onslow

 Western Australia
 

Onslow townsite on Beadon Bay and port in Beadon Creek, Western Australia. Located 1387 km north of Perth, Onslow lies on the coast 82 km from the main North West Coastal Highway. It is known in the Pilbara as 'Cyclone City', having had numerous dead-hits from cyclones over the years. 22 km offshore are the Mackerel Islands which are noted for their excellent sport fishing and bottom fishing. Onslow's solar salt field is constructed on tidal salt flats surrounding the town. The 1.3 kilometre jetty, 3.5 kilometre conveyor belt and stacker equipment provide spectacular viewing when lit up at night, join a tour from the Onslow Visitor Centre, located in the Goods Shed Museum. This historic building originally came from the Old Onslow Townsite and is full of memorabilia and relics from days gone by.

"No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man* who

is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man

be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved

the world that He gave His only begotten Son*, that whoever believes in Him should not perish

but have everlasting life. For God  did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world,

but that the world through Him might be saved." 

( * Jesus )   Gospel of John ch.3  vs.13-17.  The Holy Bible - New King James Version
