Welcome to the Shire of Cunderdin

Thank you for visiting the Shire of Cunderdin website.

We hope it provides you with any information you may be seeking as well as giving you an insight into the fantastic country lifestyle we enjoy.

Although a relatively small Shire in terms of population, what we lack in numbers we certainly make up for with endeavour. Community spirit is one of the main strengths in our two towns - Cunderdin and Meckering. Both are vibrant, successful country communities with a ‘can do’ attitude and a long list of dedicated people.

We are fortunate to have a range of sporting facilities and community organisations and there’s something for just about everyone. It’s a friendly, safe, welcoming community that offers a great alternative to the hectic nature of city living.

With exciting and innovative plans for the future I believe the Shire of Cunderdin will progress positively over the next few years, moving forward as a thriving example of what country communities can achieve.
