Welcome to Newman
Newman is situated approximately 1,186 kilometres north of Perth via the Great Northern Highway, and just 9 kilometres north of the Tropic of Capricorn.
Originally established in 1968 by a subsidiary of BHP to support the Mt Whaleback mine, Newman has become a bustling town of 6,000.
To accommodate a growing population plans are underway for a new town centre, town suqare, shopping facilities, residential and business opportunities.
The vision for Newman is to build a more sustainable, diverse community and economy with a greater sense of permanence.
