The Gascoyne Junction is a town rich in heritage and history, breathtaking views and some very interesting characters.
For over 100 years, “The Junction” has been a meeting place for local pastoralists and townspeople alike and has a population of approximately 250, with the town offering a range of facilities and activities for residents.
A sports oval and tennis courts in the centre of town is the focus for sporting activities within the Shire. Adjoining the Oval is the Gascoyne Junction Pavilion, a fully air-conditioned venue, where public and private events are frequently held.
A bright new children’s playground is located on the main street, while the Federation Park beside the oval has a pleasant rotunda, providing shade for a lunchtime stop as well as free gas BBQ and wood fired pizza oven.
The Junction Pub & Tourist Park is the only fuel outlet from Carnarvon and carries a small line of convenience, grocery and automotive supplies.
The town includes a Remote Community School, a Community Resource Centre (CRC) and also has a sealed air-strip with pilot activated lights (PAL) which is used by the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
