At nearly half the size of Victoria (105 647 square km), the Shire of Ashburton boasts some of the world's largest open cut mines, largest pastoral leases and cattle stations and a thriving fishing industry all set against a beautiful and ancient arid tropical landscape. The region's 10,000 residents are employed in a variety of industries including oil, gas, mining, cattle, fishing and tourism. The supporting infrastructure also provides employment and career opportunities.

The Council recognises that it has a responsibility to facilitate and encourage the economic development of the Shire of Ashburton and its major townships of Tom Price, Paraburdoo, Onslow and Pannawonica. 

Tom Price is located approximately 1500 km from Perth and is situated on the edge of the Hamersley Ranges, within the Shire of Ashburton. It is the highest town in Western Australia at 747m above sea level, hence the name "Top Town".

The gorges are amazing at anytime of the year and Karijini also boasts some spectacular Waterfalls and Pools; including Joffre Falls, Fortescue Falls, Circular Pools and Falls and Fern Pool. Karijini is the second largest national park in Western Australia spanning 627,442 hectares.
