Coomberdale

Coomberdale is a very small town located directly north of Moora and situated on The Midlands Road. A railway siding was established here in 1895. Several decades ago, before the Brand Highway was built, all road traffic heading north to Geraldton, Carnarvon and beyond passed through here thus surrounding towns prospered. Coomberdale is named after nearby Coomberdale Well which was thus named by settler Edmund King circa 1866
