Carnamah One-Place Study

Mid West

Western Australia


Carnamah is a town and farming community 300 kilometres north of Perth in the Mid West region of Western Australia.

The traditional owners of what we now call Carnamah are the Amangu, a language group of Aboriginal people from across parts of the Mid West. Pastoralists settled in the district during the 1860s and farmers in the early 1900s.

The Carnamah Historical Society was founded in 1983 to collect, record, preserve and promote local history. It established and operates the Carnamah Museum, restored and manages the State heritage-listed Macpherson Homestead, and actively works to share and promote local history online.

It has been at the forefront of online developments and has won many awards and commendations for its virtual museum, virtual volunteering and educational resources.

As a one-place study, the society researches the lives of its entire past populations for the Biographical Dictionary of Coorow, Carnamah and Three Springs.
