Are there currently restrictions on travel to Newman related to COVID-19?

Yes, there are currently restrictions on flights to Newman along with the rest of Australia. Before you book or search for flights, consider the following restrictions: Australia has restricted the entry of all travelers, with the exception of Australian nationals and permanent residents and their immediate family members, New Zealand nationals residing in Australia, diplomats accredited to Australia and residing in Australia and their immediate family members, and airline crew. Nationals of the Cook Islands, Fiji, French Polynesia, Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia (Federated States), Nauru, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, American Samoa, the Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu can transit through Australia to a third country without a visa. The same applies to travelers who reside in the Cook Islands, French Polynesia, or New Caledonia. The onward flight must be within 72 hours of their arrival in Australia. If there are less than 8 hours between flights, travelers must stay in the international transit area of the airport and have documents required for the next destination. If there are more than 8 hours between flights, travelers must stay in mandatory quarantine at a state designated facility until the time of the departing flight. All travelers entering Australia must self-isolate for a period of 14 days from their arrival into Australia. If the duration of their stay is less than 14 days, they must self-isolate for the entire duration. Airline crew who are nationals or residents of Australia must self-isolate at their place of residence (or hotel) between flights, or for 14 days, whichever is shorter. Airline crew who are not nationals or residents of Australia must self-isolate in their hotel on arrival until their next flight. Nationals of Australia are not allowed to travel out of Australia, except for people who regularly reside in another country, airline and maritime crew, freight personnel, offshore facility personnel, government personnel, and Australian Defence Force personnel. . If you are looking to book a trip to Newman and are outside of the restricted areas, please take the proper precautions and stay informed about travelling during COVID-19.

Located in the Eastern Pilbara region of Western Australia, the town of Newman is in one of the most isolated areas of the country. This isolation forms part of the town’s charm which includes its rugged, mountainous surroundings.  Newman itself, a young mining town with a strong economy, boasts a range of modern facilities and services. The history of the area, however, goes back tens of thousands of years having been settled by the Aboriginal Martu people over 25, 000 years ago.

The town’s claim to fame is that it’s the home of the world’s largest open-cut iron ore mine, BHB Bilton Mt Whaleback Mine.  This vast mine represents a beautiful human etch onto the deep red iron deposits that have the unique appearance of a humpback whale.   Tours of the mine operate throughout the year. 

Newman is ideal for lovers of wildlife and rugged natural beauty.  From the Weeli Walli spring to the Eagle Rock Falls, there are plenty of places to trek and swim. Nearby Rudall River National Park is one of Australia’s biggest and most remote parks.

For daytrips further afield, Karijini National Park is like no other place on earth and is composed of jaw-dropping gorges and water courses.  Even further away is the paradise-like Cape Keraudren Coastal Nature Reserve.

Most visitors to Newman will make the day trip to Marble Bar, a historic gold rush settlement and the ‘hottest town in Australia’,  home to stunning rock formations.  On the way back the fellow gold rush town of Nulligane is famed for its beautiful water spots found along the Nulligane River.

When is the best time to fly to Newman?

Peak holiday season in Western Australia is during the local winter months from May to August when the temperatures are cooler but still warm by most standards. Visitors may find it cheaper to travel outside of the school winter holidays which occur in mid-July.  During April and from September – October it’s the shoulder seasons when visitors may find cheaper deals. Whilst temperatures are very warm during the shoulder seasons, they are bearable provided you avoid going out in the midday sun. Travellers should generally avoid the local summer months from October to March when temperatures are regularly close to 40 degrees Celsius.

Getting around Newman

The town of Newman itself is small and easily navigable on foot.  However for daytrips or tours it’s possible to hire a 4×4 provided you are experienced in terrain driving.  The weather is very hot and most places are remote which means travellers need to keep plenty of water, fuel and essentials with them in the vehicle.  Alternatively it’s best to take a tour or travel with an experienced driving guide.
