Lake Austin/Callion > Lake Austin
Golconda Gold Mine
A town in the Murchison goldfields near Cue, Austin is located on an island in Lake Austin. The lake is named after its discoverer, surveyor Robert Austin who explored this area in 1854. He named the lake Great Inland Marsh, but it was later changed to Lake Austin. The townsite, which was named after the lake, was gazetted in 1895.
