Narembeen is a town in the Western Australia wheatbelt. It is 286 km, almost due east, from Perth, the capital of WA. It is the major settlement in the Shire of Narembeen, in which the major industries are growing cereal crops and raising cattle and sheep. The surrounding areas produce wheat and other cereal crops. The town is a receival site for Cooperative Bulk Handling.Narembeen means place of female emus in the local Aboriginal language.HistoryThe area was initially surveyed in 1836 by the Surveyor General John Septimus Roe. After camping on a rocky outcrop and seeing a group of Emus he named the area Emu Hill. By the 1850s European settlers arrived in the area looking for pastoral land for wheat and grazing. Sandalwood cutters also frequented the area during this time.In 1901 the rabbit proof fence was constructed just to the East of Narembeen and can still be seen today.A settler named Charles Smith bought a property he called Narimbeen. By the 1900s more farmers moved to the area as land was opened upand by 1918 the town-site of Emu Hill was gazetted.In 1920, the town-site of Narembeen only existed as a minor railway siding to the railway line that had only just been built to Emu Hill.
