DESCRIPTION

 

Bindi Bindi is a small farming settlement north of Perth. It was originally just a railroad siding,

 

Wheat farming is the main enterprise in the shire and a large bulk handling facility dominates the small town.

 

Rolf Harris named his daughter Bindi after the town, possibly one of the few instances when a person was named after a town and not the other way round.

 

HISTORY

 

The townsite was gazetted in 1947.

 

The name is thought to be an Aboriginal word for a sharp stick used to fasten a coat. Usually in Aboriginal languages, doubling the word means that there are many or the same objects so it is presumed that there were many coat fastening sticks to be found in this area.

 

The name has been spelled in some articles as Bindy Bindy but we are unsure if this was just an error.

 

The first settler in the area was John Joyce (Sr.)
