Our Pioneering Story

Pinjarra was one of the earliest areas of European settlement in Western Australia and has a rich pioneering history bursting with stories to tell.

In 1829, a settler by the name of Thomas Peel received a land grant in Pinjarra along the Murray River giving hope to the development of agriculture in Western Australia due its abundant soils. By 1834, word had spread about the rich loamy soils and pastures, bringing more Europeans to the areas with the township being established.
