Kondut is a small town in Wheatbelt region of Western Australia.

The first European to visit and chart the area was the surveyor C Crossland in 1884. He named a nearby well Conduit Well. The town was originally a railway siding that was constructed in 1913 as part of the Dowerin to Mullewa line. The townsite was later gazetted in 1917.[2]

The surrounding areas produce wheat and other cereal crops. The town is a receival site for Cooperative Bulk Handling.[3]
