Nanutarra is situated on the banks of the Ashburton River. Francis Gregory, President of the Royal Geographical Society, discovered the Ashburton River in 1861.

Nanutarra Station was started in 1879 by Harry Highman. The name 'Nanutarra' originated from an Aboriginal word for a bulrush growing in the area.

On the other hand, Nanutarra Roadhouse was built in 1965 by Frank Baxter, three kilometres from where the Nanutarra homestead originally sat. North of this roadhouse is the western access road to Karijini National Park.

Travellers going through Nanutarra today can hardly comprehend the difficulties faced by its early pioneers.

Also, there are large numbers of kangaroos in this remote area, which are not apparent during daylight hours. Driving at night is highly not recommended.
