History

Yalgoo is situated in the Murchison Goldfields area of Western Australia. The area was gazetted as a goldfield in 1895, followed by the townsite (spelled Yalgu in the original gazettal) and road district in 1896. The road district was merged with Mullewa in 1911.

Yalgoo was named after the nearby Yalgoo Peak, discovered by John Forrest in 1876. The word is derived from an Aboriginal word meaning 'blood' or 'place of blood'. The indigenous bush in the area has a blood red sap.
