Kuridala is an outback town that has had many names. The mining township was originally named Gulatten and then Friezland, but anti-German sentiment during World War I prompted another name change. The local Aboriginal word for eagle-hawk, Kuridala, was chosen.

Once a mining township, Kuridala is now marked by skeletons of the past in the form of mining stacks still dotted throughout the landscape. A little further past the old mine are the amethyst fields. Be sure to get your fossicking license either online or at the visitor information centre before you set off to fossick.
