About Mount Nameless…
The peak of Mount Nameless/Jarndunmunha stands 1128 metres above sea level, and from the lookout there are sweeping views across the Hammersley Ranges, the town of Tom Price and the iron ore mining operations. The Aboriginal name Jarndunmunha means ‘place of rock wallabies’, the name by which the Eastern Guruma people have always known it.
It’s the second highest accessible mountain by four wheel drive in Western Australia and offers all of the rewards of a spectacular mountain view without the hike! When driving to the summit, low range 4WD is required.
You can also hike to the summit – a walking trail starts from the base of Mount Nameless at back of the Tom Price Speedway track. Allow 3 hours for the return hike.
Reaching the Top of Mount Nameless Jarndunmunha – a must do signature experience for Tom Price. The mountain is located approximately 4kms from town, it is the highest accessible peak by vehicle in Western Australia and offers spectacular panoramic views of the township, Rio Tinto Iron Ore Mine and the surrounding Hamerseley ranges.
The drive is approximately 30 minutes and is accessible by 4WD only. A challenging walk from the base of the mountain is approximately a 3 hour return hike.
Most spectacular 360 views from one of the tallest mountains of WA (1,128 metres). There’s an annual event held in August called the Nameless Jarndunmunha Festival.
‘King of the Mountain’ is part of it– you have to run up the top, can walk too! This year’s winner ran it in 21min and 45sec. At the top of Mt Nameless is where you can truly experience what it is to be in this region, you get the real Pilbara experience. Surrounded by the Hamersley Ranges, the red and epic landscape. Can also see the iron ore mine site. Great for sunrise, sunset, photograph, a place where you can really take a break and take in the magnificence of the Pilbara landscape
