Badgingarra

The small townsite of Badgingarra is situated on the Brand Highway between Cataby and Eneabba and is 209 kms north of Perth. Surveyor Alexander Forrest passed through here in 1877 but it took until 1955 for the town to be gazetted. Poor soil conditions hampered the development of local agriculture until an agricultural research station was established in 1959. The town is in the Shire of Dandaragan. The passing Brand Highway was opened in 1976
