Cadoux WA


Postcode: 6466

Cadoux is a town located in the north eastern Wheatbelt region of Western Australia. It is about 180 kilometres (112 mi) northeast of Perth, within the Shire of Wongan-Ballidu.

When it was decided to establish a railway siding here in 1927 the local road board secretary suggested “Cado”, after the name of the farmer who owned the land. The name was later confirmed to be correctly spelt Cadoux, and honours Donald Cadoux, an English settler, who arrived in Western Australia in 1909. He died at Gallipoli during World War I and his name was suggested as a fitting memorial for the town.

Cadoux is a settlement situated in Western Australia, Australia. Cadoux is 3003 km from the Australian capital Canberra. Nearby places include Kirwan, Kokardine, Manmanning, Moonijin. Nearby landmarks include Koombekine Lake, Koomberkine Lake, Mount Dillon.
