Hines Hill

Hines Hill is a small locality between Kellerberrin and Merredin. It is 240 kms east of Perth on the Great Eastern Highway. Mr C. W. Massingham, an earlier local settler, attributed the town name to Mr Jack Hines, a district sandalwood collector. Mr Massingham's name is used for the Kellerberrin main street. Hines Hill was gazetted in 1910. The Southern Cross railway came through here in 1893-4 and a station built, pre-dating the town by 16 years
