In the mid to late 1900’s, Mary Kathleen township was home to thousands of residents, most worked on Australia’s largest known uranium deposit at Mary Kathleen Mine.

They enjoyed a bustling village community with a school, Olympic-size pool, open-air cinema, golf course, two churches and a hospital that delivered more than 200 babies.

With the mine long closed, the structures of the township have been all but removed. Mary Kathleen’s secrets are not hard to uncover, you’ll find the old town fountain, outline of the pool and the concrete slabs where homes once stood.

Follow the road to the abandoned mine and marvel at the sheer expanse of the pit. The earth’s yellow, orange and red hues disappear into the blue tones of the water below.

Please keep in mind that Mary Kathleen Township and Mine is on private land. Leave gates and landscapes as you found them.
