Our last trip from our Cleaverville base is to Point Samson, a small coastal settlement and a popular holiday location for the nearby mining towns, including Wickham, Karratha and Dampier. Fishing is the main industry. From 1938 to 1966 blue asbestos or crocidolite was carried here by rail from Wittenoom for shiploading by Australian Blue Asbestos Pty Ltd. The population of Point Samson was 274 in 2006. Great fish and chips at the tavern for lunch !
