The town takes its name from the local indigenous name for the river that runs through its centre. Nullagine was established following the discovery of gold in 1888. Diamonds and gemstones were also mined. Gold prospecting and gem fossicking are very popular. There is an amazing amethyst mine 20 minutes away from the hotel and numerous copper and gold mines to explore.

Nullagine’s red granite hills and majestic paperback gumtrees create a diverse and unique landscape with a wealth of rock holes, winter wildflowers and wildlife. If you’re adventurous you can search the ancient rocks of Conglomerate Gorge where you will find ancient indigenous art or enjoy the peace and natural beauty of Elle’s Pool, Beatons Creek Gorge, Garden and Daylight Pools.


Take a four-wheel drive road trip to explore Coppin’s Gap, Doolena Gorge or Carawine Gorge. Karajini National Park is well worth the experience. Comet gold mine and tourist center is located just outside of Marble Bar and for the more adventurous you could book a Hamersley Mine Tour.

Nullagine town site consists of a municipal park, telecentre, gym, police station, nursing post as well as a public library. Lookout hill is a pleasant stroll from the hotel and offers a panoramic view of the townsite and surrounding area.
