Port Hedland, WA
Cnr Cajarina Rd & Harwell Way
Wedgefield WA 6721
You’ll find our Port Hedland branch on the corner of Cajarina Road and Harwell Way. To get there, pass the BIG YELLOW wheelbarrow and take the first left, then follow that road to the end until you reach Pilbara Boats and Bikes. From there, take the first left – and you can’t miss us! (Alternatively, taking the Great Northern Highway is the best way to get to Wedgefield. From there it’s quite simple to find us as we’re only a small town in Hedland.) For public transport options, you can hop on the local bus, though most of the locals prefer taxis.
