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.

Growing Older in your Community

Rural Health West, on behalf of the West Australian Country Health Service are currently conducting a survey about your views of growing older or ageing in your community and will help understand what are the barriers and increased opportunities for people to ‘age in place’ within their local community.  The target demographic for this survey is people aged over 65 years of age, or Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people over 50 years of age, that live in the communities of Beverley, Boddington, Cunderdin, Kojonup, Manjimup, Mingenew, Mullewa, Northampton and Wagin.

The survey is also open to people in this age bracket that may have close ties to these towns, but may not live within the boundaries. For example, if you complete your regular grocery shopping, attend a medical practitioner or participate in other regular social or community activities in one of these towns, we welcome your contribution to this survey.

We expect the survey to take approximately 20 minutes to complete and there are various ways that you can provide your feedback:

  1. complete the survey on paper and return it by pre-paid return post (copies are available in the Shire office or the Library); or 
  1. complete the survey on-line via Survey Monkey – click https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Ageingincommunity ; or
  1. register your interest in the survey by telephoning 08 6389 4500 and Rural Health West can call you back to complete the survey by telephone or let you know when and where you can attend one of the upcoming face to face community sessions in your area.
