First settled in 1833, Pinjarra lies on the banks of the Murray River. One of the oldest towns in Western Australia, the area comprises predominantly of dairy and cattle farms. However, the region also reflects an historical link to the timber industry. Pinjarra is the site of the Battle of Pinjarra, also known as the Pinjarra Massacre, a battle that occurred in 1834 between local Aborigines and early settlers. In this ferocious dispute over land, 300 Aboriginals (men, women and children) were killed. Call ahead for more details.
