"Pilbara town with lots of passing trade."

Roebourne is located in the Pilbara regions and is about 1,563 kms from Perth and only 200 kms from Port Headland. With a population of just over 1,100 Roebourne is the gateway to many National parks in the inland regions, caters for many tourists and as it is on the main highway this town services all the passing traffic. Roebourne has a district school which caters for student from Kindy to year 12. The town has a TAFE campus a telecentre and a well stocked library. There is a medical centre and a district hospital as well as a supermarket and some specialty stores for all basic needs. Other services are only 40 km away in Karratha. Roebourne offers good fishing, swimming and camping as well as canoeing, rowing and windsurfing. There are numerous playing fields, a golf course and swimming pool. For sightseeing there is a scenic drive or plenty of bushwalking trails. There is not a great deal of residential property on the market here although there are some good sized block available at fairly reasonable prices. It is wise to keep in mind the climate in the area as it is tropical with a dry arid interior. Coastal areas are prone to cyclones in the summer season.
