LOCATION


Getting to Onslow

Onslow is located on the mid-coast of Western Australia, easily accessible by direct flights from Perth via Virgin Australia, and by road via Onslow Road.

Onslow Road runs about 80km off the North West Coastal Highway, which connects the main towns of Geraldton, Carnarvon, Exmouth, Karratha and Port Hedland, or off the Great Northern Highway which connects from Broome.

Onslow sits almost right in the middle of Exmouth and Karratha, being a 4 hour drive north from Exmouth or 3 hour drive south from Karratha. The Onslow Road turnoff is easily visible with sealed roads on the North West Coastal Highway following all the way through to the end of Onslow Road, making your drive an easy and safe one to embark on.

If you’re adventuring through the stunning Karijini National Park, the Nanutarra Munjina Road will connect you with the N W Coastal Highway then Onslow Road, and takes approximately 5 hours drive time.

If you’ve not considered taking the divert to Onslow on your drive between Exmouth, Karijini and Karratha, add it to your list! Travelling the heart of the inland Pilbara region plus venturing out to the coast and islands is highly recommended to get a true outback Australian experience. You can also discover Western Australia’s best kept secret at the Mackerel Islands where you can go wild in style with resort accommodation, facilities, activities and everything you need for the island adventure of your life!
