We stayed in this “Rio Tinto” town for a couple of days only. Our free camp site was an old air strip with only a couple of others around. We made a damper and had fresh bread the next morning 🙂
The road into Tom Price from Karijini is beautiful and the town has free drinking water, $2 clean showers, free wifi and Coles.
From Tom Price we also took a permit to go onto Rio Tinto track which runs along the railway line and goes all the way to Karratha.
