Information

Explorer David Carnegie first saw Mount Webb from the north on 11 April 1897 on his expedition from Halls Creek to Lake Darlot.
He visited and named the mount on 12 April 1897 after W.F. Webb Esq., of Newstead Abbey, Nottingshire.

"May 9th we left the well on a Southerly course, and were soon amongst the ridges, which continued for the next two days. The night of the 11th, having skirted a line of rough cliffs, we camped about three miles North of a very prominent single hill, which I named Mount Webb, after W. F. Webb, Esq., of Newstead Abbey, Nottinghamshire. As the sun rose that morning the mirage of a lake of apparently great size was visible for 90° of the horizon — that is, from East round to South. Neither from the cliffs that we skirted, nor from Mount Webb, was any lake visible, but it is more than probable that a large salt lake exists in this locality, possibly connecting, in a broken line, Lake White and Lake Macdonald." (Spinifex and Sand)

Mount Webb is alongside the Gary Junction Road and is just east of the community of Kiwirrkurra.
