Willare Bridge Roadhouse is located on the banks of the Fitzroy River. It is a refuelling stop for those travelling between Broome and Fitzroy Crossing.

It is 2334 km from Perth in the Kimberley region of the state.

The Roadhouse offers accommodation and is a good stop-off on the long journey through the Kimberley. There is a caravan park and on-site accommodation available and there is a nice pool to coll off in.

Apart from fuel, the roadhouse has a store and a restaurant available.

Buildings at the roadhouse originate from the Blue Streak Project that took place at Talgarno. This was a post WWII tracking station that closed in the 1970s. Some buildings from the Talgarno site were relocated to the roadhouse. Other structures were also re-purposed with some steel frames being sent to Broome and becoming part of the Mangrove Hotel.

"Talgarno was a British government project to test the accuracy of rockets designed to carry missiles.

In 1959 the Talgarno village was built on land excised from Anna Plains station, 150 kilometres south of Broome. It included swimming pools, cinema, hospital and housing. More amenities perhaps than other country towns had!"
