    “The four tallest mountains in WA, all of which are located in Ashburton – Mt Nameless, Mt Bruce, Mt Sheila and Mt Meharry, provide breathtaking views and vast scenery.

    “There is also the picturesque town of Tom Price on the edge of the Hamersley Ranges that acts as a base for exploring the rich red rock gorges waterfalls and lush greenery of Karijini while after dusk, the night skies offer a truly spectacular sight.
