The mighty Gascoyne River at 760 kms in length, is the longest river in WA, and possibly the driest! It's known as the upside down river, because although there are huge flows of water well beneath the surface only a small number of isolated pools are visible in the long and winding course of the river bed.
Expressions of Interest are now being sought for the operation of the new Gascoyne Junction Roadhouse/Tavern/Caravan Park facility. Please click on the Latest News link below for more information.
