Babakin WA


Postcode: 6428

Babakin is a small town located in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia between the towns of Bruce Rock and Corrigin. It has a population of approximately 25 people, and provides the local farming community with a school, shop, hall and sporting facilities.

Babakin was a pastoral lease from 1873 to 1914 at this location, first taken up by C Heal (Jnr). The name stems from a Noongar term for the dingo.

The area is an inhabitant area for a very rare plant species, the Underground Orchid (Rhizanthella gardneri).
