Warburton Work Camp was officially opened on 3 August 2011 following the closure of the previous Goldfields regional work camp facility at Mt Morgans. The camp is a purpose-built facility that provides accommodation for up to 30 suitably selected, low-risk prisoners.

The camp also enables offenders on community-based orders from the Ngaanyatjarra region and surrounding areas to undertake skills-based reparation activities while receiving family and community support in their cultural lands. Priority is given to maintaining and strengthening relationships between offenders, their families and the communities they will eventually return to.

The work camp, in partnership with the community, facilitates the interaction of prisoners and offenders within the community as they undertake their approved work. In time, the work camp will have the capability to undertake reparation in more remote communities via mobile work camps.
