Mundrabilla WA


Postcode: 6443

Mundrabilla is a small roadhouse community located on the Eyre Highway in Western Australia, on the Nullarbor Plain, 67 kilometres (42 mi) west of Eucla and about 20 kilometres (12 mi) north of the Great Australian Bight.

Mundrabilla station, the first sheep station on the Nullarbor, was established by Bill and Ann McGill and John and Tom Kennedy (two Irishmen) in 1871. Tom Kennedy was speared to death in 1879 and Ann McGill died in childbirth.

Like other locations in the Nullarbor Plain area, the area consists of nothing more than a roadhouse, open 5:30am to midnight each day. The roadhouse includes a small wildlife park with emus, camels and an aviary. Pastoral activities continue in the area, and fragments of a meteorite spread over a 60 km range make it one of the largest meteorite sites in the world.
