The Nullagine River rises north of the Chichester Range and trends generally northwards for 245km to its confluence with the Oakover River where these two watercourses combine to form the De Grey River.
Surveyor F.S. Brockman recorded the name for this river as ‘Ngullagine’ in 1884. It is of unknown aboriginal origin.
During the late 1880s, N.W. Cooke found gold on the banks of this river, which he called ‘Nullagine’.
