DESCRIPTION

 

It may sound strange for an inland town but Kondinin is sometimes a popular place for water-skiing and sailing. The nearby lake Kondinin is equipped with a boat ramp, but the lake can get too shallow if the rains are not good.

It is an odd country town, there are few historic buildings and many modern houses. It has very few shops in the town centre and we fail to see what the attraction to the town is. There must be one because there are plenty of houses but precious little else.

The lake would make a good overnight stop for travellers and other alternatives such as Yeerakine Rock and McCann's Rock could also be considered. As with most of the wheat-belt, Kondinin is a centre for the wheat and sheep industry.

 

HISTORY

 

John Roe was the first European known to have visited the area during an expedition he began in 1848.

In 1905, Michael Brown took up pastoral leases in the area and land was distributed for agricultural purposes from 1909.

The construction of a railway line in 1911 led to the building of a station at what was to become Kondinin. J. Graham built the first house and shop in 1916 after the townsite was gazetted in 1915. The name is Aboriginal but the meaning is unknown.
