The town originated as a railway siding on the Mullewa to Cue line in 1898 when the line was opened, which was constructed to service the surrounding pastoral stations. In 1913 land was set aside for a townsite and was gazetted in 1914. Very little development ever took place at the town.
A pastoral lease, Yoweragabbie Station, existed since as a lease 1880 in the area when it was owned by the Watson family. In 1926 the property had a flock of 21,800 sheep and produced a clip of 458 bales of wool. The station was sold in 1934 to the Yalgoo Pastoral Company and Dr. A. Thompson for over £38,000, at this stage it occupied an area of 354,796 acres (143,581 ha) and had a carrying capacity of 30,000 sheep. The Yoweragabbie railway siding was situated on the property which shared boundaries with Murrum, Nalbarra and Mundinia Stations.
