Information

Corrigin
A typical attractive wheatbelt town
Located 225 km south east of Perth and 295 metres above sea level, Corrigin is a neat and tidy town (it has won the Tidy Town award a few times) which is one of the most recent towns to appear in the wheatbelt. The town's road board wasn't established until 1913 and the railway didn't arrive until the following year. The apparent reason for this late development was that the major settlement factors in the wheatbelt (Hunt's wells, the railway, the movement of miners on their way to the Goldfields) all by passed the site of the current town. Consequently while there were sheep being run in the district as early as the 1860s (the leases of the Parker family - see Quairading - extended down into the present Corrigin Shire area) it wasn't until 1872 that D. G. Lynch took up a lease of 1000 acres which included Corrigin Well that any permanent settlement took place.
