North-Western Australia is scarcely known beyond a narrow fringe of coast line, but it is a land of vast extent and wonderful potentialities. Its pastoral areas are practically unbounded, its mineral wealth includes gold, silver, copper, lead, iron, coal - whilst the soil and climate are capable of producing almost anything that grows, Wool, sheep and cattle form staple exports, and the pearling industry has already assumed extensive
proportions. The Indian Ocean, which begirts the shores of the great Nor'-Western Territory teems with fish. To render NOR'-WEST OF WEST of value to travelers and the public generally a brief description of every town of importance from Fremantle and Perth northwards to Wyndham - the last known town in Western Australia - has been compiled giving the latest reliable data available.
