Maybe he has been as specific as he wants - "any information on PARDOO Station" - this being a 4WD/camping web site may provide a few more clues for you Goran!

Greg
I live in Port Hedland and can get you info if it's readily available at tourist bureau. Unfortunately I have not been there as yet and given the beating that they took from cyclone this year cannot say what it's like. They are open for business though as I drove past turn-off yesterday on way home from Kalumburu.
Here are some details I've taken from Pilbara brochure (I can send if you give me details)
Pardoo Station- 120 km's north of PH, then travel 13km's on well maintained gravel road. A/C twin & family rooms, share s/c kitchen. Cravan/Camping area. Excellent fishing & Mud Crabbing (can vouch for that), BBQ's, Swimming Pool, Fuel, Gas bottle refill, bait, I ce, Grocery/Liquor Store, credit card facility, no animals.

Greg, we went there in 98 they had just cleaned up after a cyclone then.
it was a typical station with junk and old toyotas everywhere.
the place was nothing great and a bit rough then, but it was interesting to see the old homestead and some station type scenery and although we didn't catch any fish as we only stayed one nite, we did see some big salmon caught when the tide came in the creek.
The road in then was very good.
My wife and i often say that if we went west again we would call in for another go at fishing.
hope this helps a bit, regards Ray
Ps i think they lost a couple of sheds and 50 windmills in the cyclone the year before we were there.

Haven't been to Pardoo station , but did go into Port Smith (just North of Pardoo) .... no fish there at middle of June (all caught) and Sandflies were very bad (me & missus both badly stung - even though they fog the caravan park every night ) ..... have since been recommended Barn Hill - just north of Port Smith (no mangroves so apparently no sandflies) .

I was at Pardoo Station yesterday and it was pretty good. Alot more caravans there than I had expected. Most of the campers are long term retirees and are qiute happy with the facilities. The fishing is great but you need bait which is available at the store but it's expensive. Better to bring your own mulies. Fuel is available at the station at $1.19 a lt. Hope this helps
