Port Hedland's origins aren't in mining as some may think; in fact, Port Hedland started out as a port town (hence the name!). One of the key players was Dalgety and Co and the current Dalgety House Museum was the company manager's residence. It has since been transformed into a historical interactive museum managed by the dedicated volunteers of the Port Hedland Historical Society.

Dalgety House Museum provides an opportunity to gain an insight into the impact that white settlement had on the Kariyarra Aboriginal people of the Pilbara. Explore the extensive collection of artifacts & documentation presented in the enlightening displays, complete with photographs, throughout the house.
