DESCRIPTION

 

Yerecoin is a tiny town off the beaten track located between Calingiri and Piawaning.

The main feature of the town are the huge C.B.H. grain bins and wheat and sheep dominate the local economy.

Unlike Piawaning, the even smaller neighbour to the north, Yerecoin has managed to stave off the decline that has plagued many tiny towns.

There is even an excellent caravan facility in town with toilets, showers, gazebo, children's playground and modern tennis courts.

Yerecoin Traders combines a general store, post-office, café and rural supplies depot. Other facilities in town include a hall a primary school and a tavern.

 

HISTORY

 

The name comes from the Aboriginal language and originally referred to a water source in the area. The meaning has been lost with time.

Its origins are tied to the building of a railway north from Toodyay from 1914-1917.

Originally the land was owned by the Midland Railway Company and was subdivided in 1925.

At this time 200 acres were set aside for the development of a town. The land was taken up by just one owner so further development was very slow.

In 1927 a school opened and the town was finally gazetted in 1966.
