Quindanning Inn – Location
The town site of Quindanning lies at , Latitude 33° 03′ S Longitude 116° 34′ E, forms part of the Great Southern Agricultural Region. Quindanning is situated approximately 157km south east of Perth and 35km west of Williams. In the 1830’s the area to the east of Quindanning was settled and used for agriculture. By 1906 smaller land lots were in greater demand. As there was already a school and racecourse, a subdivision was considered. Therefore the lots were surveyed and the town of Quindanning gazetted in October 1907.
