Madura Roadhouse


31 54 06 S 127 01 06 E







The area was settled in 1876 and horse breeding for the Indian Army was carried on for many years. Now the main facility is a roadhouse on the Eyre Highway.

During World War Two, Madura had the only known artesian bore and the water supply was important to the army engineers who were working on the construction of the Eyre Highway. The water was brackish and had to be de-salinated for human consumption but was perfectly suited for stock that were grazed in the area.

The roadhouse is situated at the bottom of the Madura Pass that was once considered as the most hazardous spot on the journey across the Nullarbor. When travelling east from Western Australia it appears as though you are travelling on a flat plain, but at Madura pass this illusion changes as you go down quite a steep descent to the coastal plain below.
