Pindar is a small town in the Mid West Region of Western Australia. It is located about 30 km east of Mullewa

In 1894, the Northern Railway from Geraldton to Mullewa was opened, and four year later was extended to Cue. A railway station was built at Pindar to service outlieing farms, and the townsite of Pindar was gazetted on 22 February 1901.[1]

The surrounding areas produce wheat and other cereal crops. The town is a receival site for Cooperative Bulk Handling.[2]

Transport[edit]

Until the 1970s, it was served by a narrow gauge line on the Western Australian Government Railways. The railway to Cue was closed on 29 April 1978 but grain freight services to the west continued on a seasonal basis.
