The Town
The town was established in 1893 with the discovery of gold on nearby Poverty Flat, with the town of Mt Magnet gazetted in 1895. The district's Aboriginal people are known as Badimaya. There are many Aboriginal sites which are held in significance to both the school and town.

The main industries of the area are mining (gold) and pastoralism. Harmony is the local mining company, which operates adjacent to the area. The town is a service centre for the Murchison Station District.

The current school site was railway yards until the Geraldton-Meekatharra railway was closed in 1978. The school moved to this site in 1984. The school buildings are mostly transportable, and are located in the central area of town adjacent to the oval and recreation centre. A new administration building and a separate staff room were erected in 1997. The school was further enhanced in 2002 with the building of a new library and covered assembly area.

Eynesbury Golf
Eynesbury Golf (Website)

Imagine living right next to your very own golf championship standard 18 hole golf course. The major focal point of Eynesbury Township is the magnificently restored 1870's Bluestone mansion which will serve as the golf course's clubhouse for the stunning Graham Marsh designed layout that will be a true challenge to any standard of golfer. The heritage listed original sheep station homestead is being impeccably restored to its former glory and will also play host to the bistro, restaurant, spike bar and reception facilities.

Eynesbury was delighted to have Graham Marsh provide the masterplan to this golf course with "real Australian character." Graham Marsh's name is legendary, his courses are amongst the finest the world over. Graham has won over 60 professional tournaments over his long and illustrious career including wins on all five of the world's major tours and whilst still an active participant in the lucrative US Senior's Tour, still finds time to build award-winning golf courses such as Sutton Bay in South Dakota. This was voted USA's best new private course in 2004. Some of Graham's signature golf courses in Australia include The Vines in W.A., Robina Woods and Palm Meadows on the Gold Coast, Terrey Hills in Sydney, and Growling Frog Public Course in Whittlesea.

The low handicap player will be tested by the course's length from its championship tees. Importantly however, multiple tee boxes will ensure that the novice player will be faced with a less daunting length of course, ensuring that every golfer will reap a reward from an Eynesbury golf visit. Generous, wide fairways and attractive, fair bunkering is a feature of the Eynesbury layout, which will be complete and ready for play in May 2007.

The golf course will have state-of-the-art electric golf carts ensuring an enjoyable, less fatiguing round of golf for everyone, plus a stunning driving range, practice putting green, chipping and bunker areas.

Sounds exclusive? Well, in some ways, yes - it will be a course that ranks right up amongst Victoria's finest - however, it will be open to the public to pay and play all year round.
