A model mining town with an attractive centre in the heart of the Hamersley Ranges in the middle of the Australian Outback, it serves the two huge mines at Mount Whaleback and Orebody 29. Mt Whaleback is now the largest open-cut iron ore mine in the world.
The surrounding landscape is very picturesque with the blue, green and red colours of the outback. See natural waterholes, ancient aboriginal art sites and an abundance of Australian flora and fauna.
Newman is also the gateway to some of Australia's best outback 4WD tracks and some of Western Australia's most beautiful National Parks.
