|Elevation||246 m (807 ft)|
|LGA(s)||Shire of Wandering|
The name is a contraction of nearby Dwardadine Creek, with "dwarda" being an Noongar Aboriginal name for the dingo. The townsite was first requested by the Wandering Road Board in 1912, with the hope it could become a future terminus for the Hotham Valley Railway, and the townsite, initially called "Dampier", was gazetted in 1914. The town however did not attract settlement. In 1940-41 a timber mill was built here by JC "Charlie" Tucak which operated for some years.
The townsite is presently owned by the Horan family, though most of the buildings were destroyed by arson in the mid-1980s.
