Named for the Yamatji phrase meaning “place of little water”, Meekatharra is located 764 km north-east of Perth and was the most northern point of the Western Australian Government Railways system. In the 1970s, the line was closed and pulled up.
Settled in 1896, much of this gold rush town’s history remains intact. Visitors can even try their luck prospecting. Today the town is the home of the Royal Flying Doctor Service and is a major supply centre for the surrounding pastoral and mining areas.
