Roebourne - Cities, Towns and Localities
Established in 1863 this historic town was once the administrative centre for all activity north of the Murchison River in the Pilbara. In fact the town is the oldest on the Pilbara coastline. Many stone buildings date from around this time and have been restored and are now classified by the National Trust.

Originally established around the "Withnell" homestead on the Harding River it was also used as the centre for the North West Gold Rush during the 19th century. Gold and copper were the mainstay of the town for many years. When the mines were finished the population drifted to other areas.

Today the township serves as a great stopover point for the many national parks in the area and access to Wickham and Point Samson which was originally established as the Roebourne's port.
