WELCOME TO CUBALLING

The name Cuballing is taken from ‘Cooballing Pool’ which was discovered by John Forrest in 1870. The Great Southern Railway was completed in 1889 and with this precious link to civilisation came the rush of settlers.

At this time it was hoped that the fledgling community would be picked to become the rail centre, with hopes of expanding it into a large town. However in 1906 Narrogin was chosen mainly due to water being readily available. Once it became apparent that the rail-head was to be established in Narrogin there was a steady decline in people coming to settle in the area. The Great Depression in the 1930’s did not help in attracting people and many farming families found they had to leave their farms and seek a living elsewhere.

It is recorded that in 1898 there were eleven residences, including the hotel. The town’s school opened in 1895 with an enrolment of six boys and fourteen girls. The school reached a peak of 59 pupils in 1913, then closed due to lack of attendance in 1929.

In 1898 the original District Hall was replaced with a more substantial building of stone and, in 1903, the Cuballing Road Board was formed, holding its first meeting on the 24 January, 1903. The District Hall was used as its office.
