History:
Originally, the town was located near the former mouth of the Ashburton River. It was abandoned in about 1925 and moved to its present site at Beadon Bay. During WWII, Onslow became an allied naval base and Japanese aircraft bombed the town in 1943.

The town is small but busy and supports an excellent prawning and fishing industry, pearling and off-shore oil exploration. A Solar salt field has been constructed on tidal salt flats surrounding the town. The 1.3km jetty, 3.5km conveyor belt and stacker equipment provide spectacular viewing when lit up at night.
