History/Origin Named after the Webb Family, pioneer pastoralists of Central Australia. Benjamin Mark Webb, born in 1867, first came to the Territory and mined gold at Arltunga around 1900. He was later a teamster and carted stores from Alice Springs and wood to the battery at Arltunga. In 1920, in partnership with J L Schaber, they took up a pastoral property east of Alice Springs known as Ramberana.
