Meekatharra is situated on the Great Northern Highway in the Murchison-East Gascoyne region of Western Australia. It is the centre of a mining and sheep and cattle district. Travellers passing through the area will be interested by the many old worked out gold mines and the relics of old machinery that go with them. The airport is located 5km from the town centre

The largest town in the Murchison district with a population of approximately 1400. Surrounded by large open cut gold fields, cattle and sheep stations and beautiful waterholes with migratory bird life from around the world, this offers a true taste of unique outback Australia. Meekatharra provides the gateway to the remote Gunbarrel Highway and to the northwest of Western Australia.

The population comprises approximately 40% Aboriginal people, a large mining sector, pastoral community members and members of various businesses, agencies and organizations that support the town.
