Mt Yagahong is one of the few natural peaks in the Meekatharra region and is reputed to resemble an emu. The local aboriginal people, the Yugunga Nya group, believe the hill represents an emu with part of its side ripped away during a dingo attack.
Nearby mining area Gabanintha flourished from 1895 to 1910 but little remains today.
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.
