Welcome to Gascoyne Murchison
The traditional home of the Wajarri, Badimaya, Yinggarda, Warriyanga and Tjupany people, Gascoyne Murchison is a land of superlatives. The Kennedy Mountain Range landforms are among the world's oldest. The world's biggest rock? Mt Augustus. The largest collection of ancient Badimaya and Wajarri rock art? That'll be Walga Rock. The stars here are the brightest, the 4WD routes through the desert among the gnarliest and most remote on earth. Europeans settled in this land quickly, rashly, driven by a fever for gold. Some towns have long been ruins dreaming of former glory, while others are still fuelled by precious metals wrenched from the depths of the earth.
