Narrogin – 1869

The town site of Narrogin is located in the great southern agricultural region, 192 km south-east of Perth and 32 km east-north-east of Williams.

Narrogin is a Wilman Noongar name, first recorded in 1869 as “Narroging” for a pool in this area. The meaning of the name is uncertain. Different sources state that it means “bat camp”, “plenty of everything” or it derived from “gnargagin” which means “place of water”.[ii]
