About Us

Meekatharra is a town with golden prospects

Situated on the Great Northern Highway, Meekatharra is the largest centre in the Murchison, easily accessible with excellent sealed roads from Perth in the south, Geraldton in the west and further north into the Pilbara.

If you haven't been to Meekatharra for a while, you are sure to notice the changes. The town has had a major face lift with the opening of the Meeka Rangelands Discovery Trail. Taking advantage of the town's historical, tourism and cultural assets, the Discovery Trail has provided a new recreation facility for locals and a new attraction for visitors.

The town has a wide range of sporting facilities including a fabulous oval, basketball courts, tennis courts and a new squash court. There is also a gym and indoor soccer& cricket facility and the sparkling Meekatharra town pool is open from October to April.

It's all moving forward at Meekatharra. It really is a town of golden prospects.

The Shire of Meekatharra is an Equal Opportunity Employer and welcomes all applications.
