Wickham is a working port town in the north of Western Australia near Karratha.

Named after John Clements Wickham, Captain of the survey ship Beagle which visited the area in the 1830s, Wickham was established especially to service the needs of the growing mining industry in the 1970s. It is now the ideal town to top up your supplies when visiting the Point Samson Peninsula.

Just out of Wickham, the Cape Lambert iron ore ship loading facility boasts one of the longest and tallest jetties in Australia. View the massive 170 tonne haul truck at Robe’s Visitor Centre.

At sunset visit Wickham’s Tank Hill lookout for a view like no other, or walk the secluded pristine sandy beaches around Port Walcott, home of the local Yacht Club.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
