Meekatharra Community Resource and Visitor Centre

The Meekatharra Community Resource and Visitor Centre is the main hub for all tourists and those wanting to explore the region.


Located in the Shire Offices on Main Street, the museum is home to hundreds of photographs dating back to the beginning of the town and memorabilia of life in Meekatharra throughout history.

Mt Yagahong

Mount Yagahong, 40km South-East along the Meekatharra-Sandstone Road, rises 150 metres above the surrounding landscape. The soil and elevation of Mount Yagahong provide healthy habitat for over 70 kinds of native plants, including bush tucker like the Wild Pear or Cogla.

Barlangi Rock

Barlangi Rock is located 75km down the Meekatharra-Sandstone Road and is centred in one of Australia’s 27 confirmed meteorite craters. This rock was formed over 2.23 billion years ago but since then the crater has filled up with soil, only seen by those who know what to look for.
