Key


The Shire of Wiluna is 950 kilometres north-east of Perth, covers 182 155 square kilometres of desert, with a population of 755 people (2011). It is roughly the same size as England, Wales, Belgium and Holland combined.

The economy is based on the pastoral industry and mining. The only town in the shire is Wiluna itself. The town provides basic facilities, and is a base for people tackling the Canning Stock Route and Gunbarrel Highway (both dirt tracks suitable only for the well prepared and with 4 wheel drives). Other attractions in the town include an indigenous art gallery, and self guided walking tours. Wiluna (town) was established when gold was discovered in the area in 1896, but is now largely an indigenous community for the Martu people.

Modern mining is active in the area for gold, nickel, lead, and a large uranium deposit is also in the shire. Specimens from the shire are generally only seen as rare secondary nickel species from the MKD5 mine
