Yellowdine, Western Australia
|Population||14 (?)|
|Elevation||356 m (1,168 ft)|
|LGA(s)||Shire of Yilgarn|
The town was initially planned in 1895 as a railway siding along the Coolgardie to Southern Cross railway line that was opened in 1896. Once gold was discovered at Mount Palmer close to Yellowdine in 1934 the government began to develop the siding as a town-site that was later gazetted in 1935. The name of the town is believed to be Aboriginal in origin, a misspelling of Yelladine, although its meaning is unknown.
