We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land throughout the Murchison GeoRegion – the Yamatji people. This includes the Badimia, Wajarri, Yugunga-Nya and Martu people. We recognise their continuing connection to the land, skies, waters and culture, and pay our respects to them and to Elders past, present and emerging.
Where is the Murchison GeoRegion?
A Journey Through Time
Take a self-drive journey through a unique and ancient landscape full of stories dating back to the Earth’s beginning around 4.54 billion years ago and visit sites of national and international, natural and cultural significance.
While you are there, witness the effect on the land of the massive geological forces of colliding continents, long-gone oceans and destructive meteorites. Discover the unique native flora and fauna of the Mulga Shrublands and be treated to a dazzling annual display of wildflowers from July to September. Connect with culture, stories and legends that map thousands of years of human history.
All this and more awaits when you explore the Murchison GeoRegion.
