Augusta is a town that lies within Wardandi land on the south-west coast of Western Australia, where the Blackwood River emerges into Flinders Bay.

Noongar people inhabited the area for an estimated 45,000 years before the arrival of European settlers, with one site near Margaret River showing signs of human habitation around 47,000 years ago.

Augusta was founded in 1830. Early settlers included John Molloy and his wife Georgiana Molloy, and members of the Bussell and Turner families.
