Barrow Island

Barrow Island is located to the north of Onslow and to the west of Karratha in Western Australia's northwest.

The island became a nature reserve in 1910 after the island's rich array of flora and fauna was recognised.

Barrow Island is also rich in oil and is Australia's largest onshore oilfield. Strict environmental policies have enabled mining to coexist with the island's status as a nature reserve.
