Township of Bittern

Established around the Warragine Creek, Bittern is named after the shy wetland bird, which underlines the town's location amidst significant areas of native bushland and dense coastal vegetation.

The district formed part of the great Coolart pastoral run of the 1860s. The railway arrived in 1889 and small scale commercial development began during the early 1900s, but the town never reached its hope of becoming a major service centre to the nearby naval base.
