Finding Augusta

Augusta was first charted in 1622 by the Dutch East India Company ship Leeuwin. It was founded as a town in 1801.

The historical significance of Augusta is obvious in the care and attention the town gives to historical sites.

The Pioneer Memorial, opposite the war memorial gives you a chance to experience settler-age graves and monuments.

A quaint little town, if offers just what you'll need to explore the local area.
