The locality's boundaries and name were gazetted on 4 April 2007. Its name is derived from the Delamere Station and ultimately from the name of the South Australian home of Dr WJ Browne, a former leaseholder. [1]

The Victoria Highway passes through the locality from the Stuart Highway in the east to the Western Australian border in the west. The Buntine Highway passes through the locality from the south and terminates at the Victoria Highway near the Willeroo homestead. [10] [9]
