In Detail

Roebourne is the oldest surviving town between Port Gregory (north of Geraldton) and Palmerston near Darwin. Roebourne was named after the first surveyor general in WA in the 1860s, Sir John Septimus Roe. John and Emma Withnall were the first European settlers in the area who went searching for water in the area and discovered many of the sites still around today including the town site of Roebourne.
