Kukerin

Western Australia

Kukerin is a friendly farm community situated some 316 kilometres south-east of Perth.

It is believed that the small town of Kukerin takes its name from two early sandalwood cutters, Cookie and Ring. By the mid 1870s, John Holland (after whom the Holland Track is named) had taken up a pastoral lease of 9,000 acres at Merilup Spring (later renamed Kukerin) and established a sandalwood depot.
