Nullagine is located 1,364 kilometres north-north-east of Perth, and 296 kilometres south-east of Port Hedland on the old Great Northern Highway and the Nullagine River in the Pilbara region.

Formerly a gold mining town, the area is rich in minerals such as iron ore, agate, asbestos, antimony, beryl, chalcedony, copper, jade, jasper, manganese, tiger eye and wolfram. A local legend claims that a resident once stubbed his toe on a 20 ounce nugget of gold when walking down the main street.

About 200 people live in the town, many are local Martu people who represent the bulk of the residents. The town is also the place of the Yirrangadji Aboriginal Community.

The town has a roadhouse, which also doubles as a general store, plus a hotel, a police station, local school and a caravan park.

The high price being obtained for iron ore combined with newly-discovered deposits to the south-west of the town hold promises of a revival in the local economy.
