Ghost towns - Western Australia

 

 

 

 

 

This is a list of towns that were known to exist at one time but have since been abandoned. Before you hop in your 4x4 and rush out to see the old buildings you must remember that many of these places were not permanent settlements and most were in existence in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Few have any structures remaining to look at today. This list is given to show how many settlements grew up and were abandoned in W.A. it is a historic reference only and not a recommendation of places to go and look at. This shortened version was complied with the aid of a very detailed list compiled by the Morawa District Historical Society. That list includes much more detail and could be an important genealogical reference as many people who lived in these abandoned settlements are named in their list.
