DESCRIPTION

 

Marchagee is located on the Midland Road, 243 kilometres north of Perth.

The name is Aboriginal in origin but the meaning is unknown.

It was first named Marchagee Well when land was set aside for travellers in 1876.

When the railway was built in 1899, a siding was established at the site.

The townsite was gazetted in 1927 and later it became a grain receival point for C.B.H..

In 1952, land was set aside for the 'Protection of Native Flora'. This is now the Marchagee Nature reserve and covers 577 Ha. In 1975 it was designated as a Class C reserve. The reserve is 11 kilometres north of Marchagee.

The most notable features of the reserve are salt pans and a salt marsh in the north west corner. As many as 12 species of birds have been recorded in the reserve.
