Upper Gascoyne Huge on History

Shire of Upper Gascoyne Works Manager Jarred Walker talks about the attractions and history of the area and its links to early Australian pioneers.

The Shire of Upper Gascoyne is 57,000 km², but only has 40km of bitumen roads. Works Manager, Jarred Walker doesn’t believe this is a reason to not visit the Shire though, “We’re home to Mt Augustus, the largest rock in the world, and the Kennedy Ranges”. 

“Gascoyne Junction is only small but we’re huge on history and we welcome tourists… They can retrace the steps of Kingsford-Smith and the early pioneers” says Jarrod.
