Mardella

A very small settlement on Wright Road between Mundijong and Serpentine and situated on the main south-west railway. The locality used to have its own railway siding where trains of old, such as the Bunbury Shopper, would pause. All that remains of the town now, indeed there may have been not much more before, is what you can see here plus a few houses and a hall. The country here is fine farming land with good rainfall and verdant pastures


 
 
   
 
 

Mardella - Old General Store

This old General Store on Wright Road has long closed, at least operating as a general store. April 2011. Photos Ref: MARD001

 

Mardella - Old General Store and House

The Mardella store again, this time taking in the old adjacent house which looks to be abandoned. On the front of the store can still be seen "Balaan" and "Floatsafe". I'd suggest these are parts of old, separate signs. Balaan was a supplier of equestrian equipment. There are a number of horse properties in the district. April 2011. Photos Ref: MARD002

Mardella - Free Reformed Church

At 191 Wright Road but only slightly south of the Mundijong townsite is the brand new Free Reformed Church complex. Just nearing completion, it looks fabulous. A whole lot of passionate work must have gone into building this place because you can feel that in the air. March 2017. Photos Ref: MARD006
