"Not a place for city folks"

Paraburdoo is a town which was built in the late 1960’s to house the miners working at the Hammersley Mine. The town is approximately 1556 kms from Perth and 79 kms from Tom Price. Most of the residents here are employed either by the mine or work to support workers from the mine. The population is around 1600 and the town has its own airport 8 km from the town centre. The climate is variable with highs in the 40’s and lows dropping to single figures. Rainfall too is variable especially in cyclone season. There is not a lot of real estate for sale here and what there is can be quite expensive given the area and rentals can be very scarce as well. Paraburdoo has both a primary and a secondary school as well as pre primary, day care centre and a TAFE college. There is a good medical centre and is also serviced by the Royal Flying Doctor Service. The town has shopping facilities to cater for all your needs including a supermarket, pharmacy, hairdresser, newsagency, bottle shop, hardware store, clothing store etc. There are sporting venues including a swimming pool, tennis courts, netball, cricket and football fields.
