Burrup Peninsula


Murujuga, usually known as the Burrup Peninsula, is a peninsula in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, adjoining the Dampier Archipelago and near the town of Dampier. (The region is sometimes confused with the Dampier Peninsula, 800 km to the north-east.) In Ngayarda languages, including that of the indigenous people of the peninsula, the Jaburara people, murujuga means "hip bone sticking out".

During our stay at Point Samson north of Karratha we undertook a day trip to the North West Shelf Visitor Centre located along the Burrup Peninsula. From the Visitor Centre you overlook the North West Shelf Gas Plant and learn about the gas processing operation. There are a number of interactive displays and the see how the gas is piped from offshore wells and processed before shipping in a liquid form.

The Burrup Peninsula, has beautiful white beaches, unique rock formations and the most prolific collection of Aboriginal rock art in Australia - home to hundreds of archaeological sites. This is a sacred place for the indigenous community of this area who have been here for over 30,000 years - amazing.

After visiting the North West Shelf Visitor Centre we drove to Hearson’s Cove which is popular for fishing and swimming - very pretty.  Apparently you can see the ‘Staircase to the Moon‘ phenomena from this cove - at certain times of the year when the sun is setting over mud flats at low tide.
