Perenjori is a townsite in the northern agricultural region, 348km north of Perth and 39km south-east of Morawa. It is located on the Wongan Hills to Mullewa railway line which was opened in 1915. Perenjori was approved as the name of a siding in April 1913, and later that year the government decided to establish a townsite there. Perenjori townsite was gazetted in 1916.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.OverviewPerenjori is the Aboriginal name of a nearby water source, Perenjori Rockhole being first recorded in 1911 when land was set aside for a water reserve at the rockhole. The rockhole was sometimes spelt Perengory or Perangery, and it is believed the name may be derived from the Peranj-jiddee bush which surrounded the rockhole. The bush is similar to the Black Wattle. The surrounding areas produce wheat and other cereal crops. A bulk wheat bin was constructed in the town in January 1940 which is capable of holding about 220,000 bushels. The town is a receival site for Cooperative Bulk Handling.HistoryDan Woodall was the first permanent settler in the areas. He came to the area in 1905 to manage Perangery Station, then owned by the Lee Steere family. In 1906 the four Farrell brothers came to the area to take up land. The Lands Department approved agricultural lots of 1000 acres instead of the large pastoral leases which had been granted in the past. Perenjori was declared a town on 16 February 1916.Perenjori is in Western Australia. Make Perenjori central to your Australia travel plans using our Australia trip itinerary maker .
