Mount Nameless

Mount Nameless overlooks Tom Price and at 1128 metres above sea level it is the second highest accessible mountain in Western Australia. Mount Meharry, WA’s highest mountain at 1248 metres, has a very rough and dangerous track leading to the summit.

In 1960/61 the Hamersley Iron Survey team referred to this feature as Mt No Name. Common usage changed it to Mount Nameless.

In 2007 the peak near Tom Price known as Mount Nameless reverted (jointly) to its aboriginal name of Jarndunmunha – the name by which the Eastern Guruma people have always known it.

The Shire of Ashburton agreed to a joint name (Jarndunmunha/Mount Nameless) because the community has become attached to the Mt Nameless title, having called the town’s biggest event the Nameless Festival in its honour.

The reports of the various trips, tours and travels on the Adventures website have a lot of information about place names – their naming and features – toponymy. More information.
