The meaning of the name is thought to mean either "place of the bandicoot" or "place of flowers" .Like many small towns in the area, Cunderdin developed as a stop-off town during the gold rush in the WA Goldfields . Significantly in 1894 the railway arrived signalling the earliest settlement in the town . In 1901 the Goldfields Water Supply Scheme, designed by C. Y. O'Connor, led to a renewed increase in population of the town . The townsite was gazetted in 1906.In 1932 the Wheat Pool of Western Australia announced that the town would have two grain elevators, each fitted with an engine, installed at the railway siding. An elevator was duly erected the following year next to the Westralian Farmers grain-shed.Cunderdin is in Western Australia.
