Hamersley Range: Mountain range in the Pilbara region of Western Australia
The Hamersley Range is a mountainous region of the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The range was named on 12 June 1861 by explorer Francis Thomas Gregory after Edward Hamersley, a prominent promoter of his exploration expedition to the northwest. Juukan Gorge lies within the ranges, about 60 kilometres (37 mi) from the mining town of Tom Price, as does Karijini National Park.
