Wongan Hills Civic Centre, WA, Ballardong Country
Wongan Hills Civic Centre stands on the traditional lands of the Ballardong People.
Wongan Hills is approximately 184km north of Perth. The town is named for a nearby range of hills that are found to the north-west of the town. Surveyor General John Septimus Roe arrived in the district in 1836, seven years after the founding of the Swan River colony. The Wongan Hills name originates from the Aboriginal name ‘Wongan Katta’, which translates to ‘Talking Hills’, referring to the wind whispering through the hills. These hills are the largest single area of natural vegetation remaining in the northern Wheat Belt. The first settlers arrived in 1905. In 1909 the first store was opened, but it wasn’t until 1911 that the townsite was officially proclaimed when the railway line was opened to traffic. Two years later the first school in town commenced, and in 1916 local government was established. Wongan Hills is now a modern, progressive town with a strong community spirit.
