Kingoonya was established in the early 1900s as a railway support town on the line extending west. It became more important during and after the First World War, when in fulfilment of the undertakings given to Western Australia in the processes leading up to Federation, the East-West railway line was built west to link with Kalgoorlie and Perth. Prior to 1987 when the Stuart Highway was sealed and re-routed north and east of the township, Kingoonya was also the point at which the old dirt Alice Springs road left the east-west railway line and its service roads and headed north to the tar at the NT border.

Kingoonya has a hotel, a caravan park and a campsite with toilets beside the railway line where you may see and certainly hear the freight trains and the Ghan and Indian Pacific every few hours. There is full Telstra reception. Fuel is also available from the caravan park using a self-serve credit card operated pump.
