Cunderdin, WA

Located a two hour drive east of Perth on the Great Eastern Highway is the town of Cunderdin.

Cunderdin was first settled with the arrival of the railway in 1894. In 1901, the Goldfields Water Scheme reached the town, bringing with it an increase in population.

Visitors can see machinery used in bygone years at the Cunderdin Museum, including displays depicting the violent 1968 earthquake, an original steam pump used on the Goldfields Water Scheme, a Tigermoth aircraft, an original bush school and many artifacts depicting the pioneering spirit of the district.

A deep gash in the earth, caused by the Meckering Earthquake which destroyed the town in 1968, can still be seen today, 11 kilometres from Meckering, on the Quellington (York) Road.

Cunderdin has a caravan park.
