West Oz Active PhotoWho is West Oz Active?

We are the small group adventure specialists.

We are a proudly Western Australian Company. Owner operator Pete West's ancestors arrived in the Pilbara in the 1890's. Searching for Gold in Nullagine in the fabulous, yet harsh East Pilbara. The Search for Pete & his team continues today. The Pilbara's natural Beauty replacing the allure of Gold.

West Oz Active Adventure Tours is a commercial Tourist operator located within the Karijini National Park. Our Activities are dedicated to Canyoning and Roping activities. We have been established here since 2007 and are celebrating our 10th season in 2017. Getting our clients safely and respectfully into Karijini’s hidden and restricted gorges is what we live for. As Pete always says at the morning tour briefing, "Karijini is a demanding beauty & she will not give up her beauty easily, this is what makes Karijini Great!"

Our experience comes from many great years of guiding visitors through the North West region of Western Australia.

We are among the few operators who live & work in the Pilbara region. Our head office is not in Europe, North America or East Coast Australia. We are based in the region we love and serve. This ensures our guests total satisfaction, because "The Buck stops here!"

This is never lost on us here at West OZ Active. We assure our guests that their booking is received with the respect that their journey commands.
