Summary

Gazetted in 1866, Roebourne was the first town in the North West of Western Australia. The Ngarluma people are the traditional owners of this land and call this place Yirramagardu.

The Roebourne Heritage Trail is a self-guided 5km walk or drive (with an extended option of 8km to visit three outer-town sites) capturing the most significant historical sites in Roebourne. The route is signposted with large interpretive signage detailing the importance and history of each building or site.

This trail takes you on a journey to discover the history behind eighteen of the oldest and most significant buildings and sites in Roebourne. The trails also provides an insight to how life was for the early settlers and Aboriginal people all those years ago.
