Information

Yandanooka is a small town in the Mid West region of Western Australia. The town is located between Mingenew and Three Springs on the Midlands Road and was gazetted in 1919. Yandanooka is the aboriginal name of the local water source.

The first settler in the area was Thomas Whitfield in the 1850s, and the railway opened in 1895, along with the siding that you can see today. In 1927 Mingenew opened a hotel in town. Railway traffic had increased dramatically. In 1978 the primary school closed, and the original school building was demolished in the 2000s, however the principal's house is the only remaining school site structure still standing.

In the 1980s the siding closed to grain receivals and the facilities removed. By 2010 all that remained of the town site were the former general store, now a private residence, the town hall with adjoining CWA children's park, a small shed used by locals for mail receipt, and the principal's house. The railway is still in use however, and the area popular for wildflower tourism.

At the back of the town hall is a 72hr RV facility for self-contained caravanners and motorhomes to stay free. See separate Place listing for more details.
