Only a couple of kilometers long, this is a spectacular drive down from the high plains to the lower lying plains at the bottom of the Hamersley Ranges. The b.Bitumen of the Nanutarra Road twists and turns through this narrow , red walled canyon providing a first hand glimpse of the Pilbara. The decent commences almost from the Hamersley Gorge turn off and ends a couple of kilometers later when the road spills out onto the plains and meets the Fortescue Solomon Rail line. This is a short by spectacular drive.
