Cuballing

This small town is around 20 kilometers north of Narrogin, between Narrogin and Pingelly on the Great Southern Highway. The locality is 195 km south-east of Perth. Cuballing is a bit of a treasure trove of historic buildings and is one of the most picturesque localities in the region. It's original name was Cubballing, named after a nearby pool. The town was already settled when the rail went through here in 1889. The town was later gazetted in 1899
