Information

Meentheena Veterans Retreat is dedicated to those who have served in the Australian military forces, as well as para-military veterans who have served in peace-keeping roles, police, fire and rescue, ambulance officers and state emergency service volunteers.

Situated in the heart of the Pilbara in Western Australia, Meentheena has so many things to offer for those who have an appreciation for wide open spaces, rugged and colourful landscapes, pristine billabongs, beautiful flora and fauna, stunning sunsets and the kind of silence that can only be found in the outback.

Main camp has 24 hour solar/battery/generator power, potable drinking water, showers and toilet facilities. Shade for caravans/campers or tents. Large areas to move or camp out of the way and avoid everyone (if that's what you want). If not feeling well and need some air conditioned comfort, settle down in an ensuite donga. If you need to work on your car or caravan, you can park in the open work shed and do your work. There is a Camp Kitchen/ Club House with wash-up and cooking facilities with refrigeration available. Phones and small appliances can be recharged in the Club House.

HISTORY:
Meentheena is named after a rock formation in a giant late Archean lake system called the Meentheena Member (Tumbiana Formation). For more scientific details see https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0301926809001399

Meentheena Station was also known as Purungunya (aboriginal name). It is no longer a cattle station.
