THINGS TO DO IN PORT SAMSON
Helen MacGregor is the Managing
Director at Point Samson Resort and
has lived in the Pilbara for 32 years.
She shares her favourite things to do
and see around Point Samson.
Late afternoon driving | I love
driving in the bush, watching the
colours change over the landscape.
The washed-out haze created by
the heat turns to intense reds,
golds and greens.
Visiting offshore islands | It’s
great just floating on a glassy
ocean, watching the dolphins
play. You can snorkel over amazing
coral gardens, then watch baby
turtles hatch on a deserted island
beach under the full moon.
Historic sites | On rainy, hot
days, check out Cossack and the
Roebourne visitor centre where
you can get an insight into the life
of the early settlers.
Nightlife | The Staircase to the Moon
(the night-sky spectacle on full
moons at low tide) starts around
April. I also love walking over the
reef at low tide at midnight with a
torch, watching the nocturnal reef
dwellers come out to feed.
Camping and fishing | Try Delambre
Island if you have a boat, or
Cleaverville if you don’t.
Eating | Tata’s Restaurant, and fish
and chips at Moby’s Kitchen.
