Western Australia

Found in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia, approximately 220km south-east of Perth between the towns of Wickepin and Corrigin. It is located beside a lake with the same name. While the town’s population is small, it services a large agricultural district in the northern Wickepin Shire.

Early pioneers planted gums and pine trees in town and near the lake. The lake has long been a popular place for picnics and sporting events. Starting life as a railway siding on the Merridin to Wickepin line the townsite was gazetted as Yearlering in 1912 the incorrect spelling was noticed and changed after a few weeks. The name is of Aboriginal origin and was first recorded in 1870 for the lake next to the town. It was first settled in the 1870s as a grazing lease and was later the site of a market garden.
