Lock Map


The Shire of Yilgarn is 400 kilometres east of Perth, covers 30 720 square kilometres, and has a population of 1 576 (2011).

It sits at the eastern boundary of the wheatbelt agricultural regions, and the western edge of the Goldfields region. The economy is based on cereal growing/sheep, the pastoral industry, mining and tourism. Gold, gypsum, salt and iron ore is mined in the shire.

The largest town is Southern Cross on the Great Eastern Highway. Other towns include Koolyanobbing (mining camp), Bullfinch and Marvel Loch. There are many ghost-towns in the shire, and the three towns mentioned existence is entirely dependent on the nearby mine to it remaining open. The shire is largely flat with the occasional low hill, or steep rise. A lot of the shire is covered in dry heathland or salmon gum woodland.

Southern Cross was established in the 1890's when gold was discovered. The shire contains hundreds of old gold mines, too many for Mindat to list. A line of historic and modern goldmines follows a north-south greenstone belt from Bullfinch through Southern Cross and onto Marvel Loch. The other major mining operation in the shire is iron ore from Koolyanobbing.
