Gazetted in 1924, Northcliffe is one of the youngest towns in the Southern Forests and Valleys region. Northcliffe was named after Lord Northcliffe – a prominent English figure and owner of The Times and the Daily Mail in London – who promoted the Group Settlement Scheme, which promised land to British settlers interested in emigrating to Western Australia. Northcliffe was one of the towns specifically selected for settlement under this scheme. Northcliffe remains the location with exhaustive access to stunning national parks, beaches and sites of importance to Aboriginal people.
