Green Head

W. E. Archdeacon surveyed this area in 1875 and coined the name Green Head simply because it was descriptive of what he saw. Green Head is a small fishing town along the Batavia Coast. Cray fishing is the dominant industry. The town is north of Jurien Bay and south of Leeman and approximately 290 kms north of Perth. Camping land was set aside in 1946 and such was the demand that building lots began selling by 1959. The town was gazetted in 1966
