DESCRIPTION

 

The tiny town of Tincurrin is a few kilometres south west of Harrismith.

Tincurrin school operates to primary level only. The general store closed in 2004 but there is an agricultural store and a post office.

It is yet another siding on the railway that gradually developed into a small town. Wheat and sheep farming are the main reasons for the town's existence.

 

HISTORY

 

The name has been spelled Tinkurrin in the past but Tincurrin was gazetted in 1922.

J.Oxley recorded the name in 1892 in reference to a fresh water spring. The name is Aboriginal in origin but the meaning is not known.

A siding was established on the Narrogin to Kondinin rail line in 1914 and land was set aside for a town.

The town has always been small but early development included a post office (1925) and a one room school (1938).

It became a grain receival point when C.B.H. builtwheat bins in the town in 1939.
