Our vision: a nationally significant, friendly city where people want to live and are proud to call home.

Port Hedland is transforming into a vibrant attractive regional city, soon to be home to 50,000 people who are proud to live, work and play in the heart of the Pilbara.

Together with State Government, the resources industry, local business and community groups we're delivering our Pilbara Cities vision.
