DUMBLEYUNG

Dumbleyung is encountered when traveling from Wagin to Lake Grace. Dumbleyung is another Wheatbelt town. Dumbleyung is a remote crossroads town within this ‘rich’ region but being remote has determined economic survival is on a knife edge.

Dumbleyung's name is of Aboriginal origin, coming from "Dambeling" which possibly means "large lake or inland sea" (although another source suggests it came from "dumbung", a game played with bent sticks and a hard piece of fruit). The lake nearby was discovered and named Dambeling Lake by explorer Henry Landor in 1843, and the current spelling was used by surveyors in the 1860s and 1870s. Dumbleyung had grown to become the major but limited rural services town. The nearby lake is a well-known attraction.

The Dumbleyung Hotel is the grand and classic country pub. Over a 100 years of service!!!

The Dumbleyung War Memorial is located on the north side of the tracks.

The Dumbleyung Museum is represented by the ‘vintage car club’.

The Anglican and Catholic denominations are represented in Dumbleyung. One old and the other modern.

If the timing is right refreshment beckons at this grand old pub.
