Roebourne is located 30 kilometres east of Karratha in the Pilbara. Named after the first Western Australian surveyor, General John Septimus Roe and proclaimed in 1866, Roebourne is the oldest settlement in the North West.  Make sure to visit the heritage listed Old Roebourne Gaol - now home to the Visitor Centre & Historical Museum, offering an insight into pioneer and Indigenous history.  Check out one of the many Aboriginal art galleries and the Emma Withnell Heritage Trail, a 52 kilometre drive route to Cossack that commemorates the 'first lady of the Pilbara'.
