The community was established in the 1980s in the vicinity of a bore put down by Shell Oil. The company was searching for oil and constructed an extensive network of seismic lines, some of which are now used as main access roads to the community or as hunting tracks
The community is managed through its incorporated body, Tjirrkarli (Aboriginal Corporation), incorporated under the Aboriginal Councils and Associations Act 1976 on 24 March 1987.
Tjirrkarli Layout Plan No.1 has been prepared in accordance with State Planning Policy 3.2 Aboriginal Settlements. Layout Plan No.1 was endorsed by the community on 3 December 2003 and the WAPC on 29 June 2004. The Layout Plan map-set and background report can be viewed at Planning Western Australia official site.
