Gutha is a townsite in the Mid West region of Western Australia, 32 kilometres (20 mi) north of Morawa.

In 1913 it was decided to establish a train station there, on the Wongan HillsMullewa railway. The district surveyor suggested the name "Muthingutha", the Aboriginal name of a nearby rockhole. This was shortened to Gutha by the Lands Department, and Gutha siding was established in 1913. It was gazetted as a townsite in 1914.

The surrounding areas produce wheat and other cereal crops. The town is a receival site for Cooperative Bulk Handling.
