Amery is a rail siding and townsite 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) northeast of Dowerin in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia.


Amery was first known as "Ejanding" in 1910. Its name was changed to Amery in 1928, apparently because another railway siding approximately 26 km further north was to be named Ejanding.[1]
