The townsite of Serpentine (32°22'S
115°59'E) is located 55 km south south east of Perth and 7 km south
of Mundijong. Serpentine is located on the South Western
Railway between Perth and Bunbury, and was one of the original stations
when the line was opened in 1893. In 1891 the government had opened up
land in the area by declaring the Serpentine Agricultural Area, and in
1893 decided there was sufficient demand for town lots by gazetting the
Townsite of Serpentine in December 1893. The townsite derives its name
from the nearby Serpentine River. The name is descriptive, derived from
the "serpentine" nature of the river in its lower reaches where
it was discovered and named in the early 1830s. Serpentine also serves
as a stop on the Australind passenger train.
