It looks so familiar but I can't put my finger on where I remember it from😁. Looking at the palm trees is it safe to assume QLD?

It's not Port Headland is it? It has been 20 years since our trip to that region and I'm struggling to remember our itinerary😂

It sure is 🙂  Not many cruise ships visit Port Hedland of course. We were there on Radiance OTS in 2014. I took the only excursion offered which was a 1 hour bus trip around the town and iron ore processing facilities.

No stops, no toilet or photo break, so any photos were taken thru the bus windows. Very interesting.

 

Very busy port, with lots of huge cargo ships coming and going

Here is a video of how that shipping control tower was demolished last year.
