The Twenty Five Mile Well
This well was restored by the Meekatharra Lions Club as a memorial to the many drovers who used the Northern Stock Routes during the years from the first settlers to the coming of the road trains.
Wells like this were the lifeblood and livestock and drovers alike.
Dedicated on Sunday July 4th 1976
