DESCRIPTION

 

Ballidu is a small wheatbelt town in the shire of Ballidu-Wongan Hills. Localities in the shire include Wongan Hills, Ballidu, Cadoux, Kondut and Burakin.

 

There are not many facilities in town but a primary school continues to operate and a general store supplies basic needs.

 

An annual event known as 'Bike-it to Ballidu' was a 34 km bike ride from Wongan Hills to Ballidu. Sadly the event seems to have ceased to operate since 2008.

 

The population of the town has grown smaller over the years as the need for rural workers has decreased.

 

HISTORY

 

The Lands Department wanted to name this town Duli after the nearby Duli Rock hole, but local residents wanted it named Balli Balli. As a compromise the name of Ballidu was adopted and the town site gazetted in 1914. Many of the street names used in the town come from various varieties of wheat.
