  1. Mulga Queen Community
  2. Mulga Queen is a medium-sized Aboriginal community, located 150 km north west of Laverton in the Goldfields-Esperance region of Western Australia, within the Shire of Laverton.
     
    The permanent buildings making up Mulga Queen were established in the mid 1980s. The settlement originally came about as a result of gold discoveries in the region in the late 1900s and the arrival of prospectors. These events and increasing contact with Europeans were accompanied by a breakdown of the traditional lifestyle of the Aboriginal people living in the area. Later a food depot was established by the government and Mulga Queen became established as a semi permanent camping ground for Aboriginal people.
