Description

Located 38km north of Kalgoorlie and 633km east of Perth, Broad Arrow Cemetery was once a thriving and successful gold mining town, known originally as Kurawah.

It is said that Broad Arrow changed its name in 1893 because a prospector, having found gold in the area, marked the route to the spot with a series of Broad Arrows. The gold rush started in 1893, the railway arrived (from Kalgoolie) and the town was gazetted in 1896, and the following year the municipality of Kurawah was formed.
