General:
Situated about 14kms from the coast, on the Harding River, Roebourne is the oldest town on the NW coast of WA.

It was established in 1866 and a walk or drive around Roebourne reveals many restored historic buildings and an insight into earlier times, when Roebourne was regarded as the capital of the North West.

These include the old hospital (1887), the post office (1887), the courthouse, gaol and police barracks, the Holy Trinity Church (1895) and the Union Bank (1889).

Today Roebourne is still the Gateway to the Pilbara region, which has multi-million dollar iron ore deposits, a vast pastoral industry and many other minerals, along with the historic port of Cossack and the very popular Point Samson Peninsula.
Attractions:
Harding Dam
Located 27kms from Roebourne, Harding Dam is an ideal destination for a day drive and picnic with free gas BBQs and shady gazebos, set amongst grassed areas on the edge of the downstream
