The Aboriginal name for Mount Bruce is Punurrunha. At 1,234 metres high, it is Western Australia’s second tallest peak.
Iron ore mine
Marandoo is an iron ore mine run by Rio Tinto. It opened in October 1994. The Hamersley Range is one of the world’s major iron ore sources and contains about 80 per cent of Australia’s identified iron ore reserves.
In hotter months, it is best to climb during the cooler parts of the day. Take plenty of drinking water and sun protection.
