Nullagine is an old gold rush town in Western Australia's Pilbara region. It is located on the Nullagine River 296 km south-east of Port Hedland and 1,364 km north-north-east of Perth on the old Great Northern Highway.
Gold prospecting and gem fossicking are very popular. However, most of the area is under lease, so you will need to seek permission first.
A visit to the Conglomerate Hotel or the Nullagine Roadhouse will not only provide you with current road condition reports, but you will also be able to purchase fuel, supplies and obtain information about the history of the area.
