Cyclone Rusty clean-up continues on Pardoo stationWednesday March 13, 2013 - 14:32 EDT
The owner of a cattle station in the Pilbara, battered by cyclone Rusty, says he is confident the site will be open to the public before Easter.
The cyclone crossed the coast at the small community Pardoo two weeks ago.
The storm battered Pardoo Station, waterlogging many of its buildings, tearing off shed roofs and washing out about 300 kilometres of the station's roads.
Cattle were also found dead.
Pardoo Station owner Graeme Rogers says the popular camping destination is currently closed while the main access road to the property is being fixed.
"It might be a couple of kilometres of one lane but it will be fine," he said.
"Our access is pretty ordinary and it's only four-wheel drive at the best at the moment but we will be working on that very soon and before Easter it will be a two-wheel drive track again."
