Quairading is the next Wheatbelt town when heading west from Bruce Rock towards York. Quairading is a very pretty small town that has the majority of essential services. The main street is a wide avenue with lots of gardens. Very appealing.
Our town’s name is derived from ‘Kwirading’ - the Aboriginal name for the home of small bush kangaroo. ‘Kwirading Spring’, just south of the town, was used by Aboriginals as a stopping place
Quairading was first recognised as an agricultural area in the early 1860's and developed as a rural centre for the ever expanding wheat and sheep industry.
Quairading is a farming community with a population of approximately 1,200, producing cereal and grain crops, wool, sheep, cattle and Rural Service Industries.
The district includes the localities of Quairading, Pantapin, Yoting, Badjaling, Dangin, South Caroling, Balkuling, Doodenanning & Wamenusking.
