Pilbara Oasis between Karijini & Ningaloo

Cheela Plains Station is a family owned and managed working cattle station nestled in the semi-arid, pastoral rangelands of the Pilbara in northern Western Australia. Our station-stay is a welcome stop for travellers on the Nanutarra-Munjina Road between the World Heritage listed Ningaloo Reef and Karijini National Park.

Cheela Plains Station spans the Beasley River Gorge with ancient rock formations that can be traced to the origins of the range in Karijini National Park.

Been visiting the Pilbarra and karijini area for 15 years now, and only discovered this lil gem recently! Cheela is a great transit spot on the way to Tom Price/Karijini. It was wa long drive from Exmouth this time, and we needed an overnight stop over to break the journey in two. Cheela is the spot. Facilities were great, as well as the hikes and sunset! Will def be back again!
