The History of Pindimar City

Pindimar is an Aboriginal name meaning 'Black Possum'. The site was proposed for the development of Pindimar City as a port for overseas shipping in 1918. Pindimar was also the suggested site of a naval base for the Pacific Fleet by Admiral of the Fleet, Viscount Jellico, in 1919. The proposed city was designed by W. Scott Griffiths and covered an area of 7000 acres. Plans for the development included farming lots for returned soldiers, a railway link, industrial and educational zones, a cathedral, golf links and cemeteries.

In 1920's Frederick Phillips (the grandfather of one of the current owners) had spread his interests to include the purchase of the Pindimar estate consisting of the present village of North and South Pindimar as well as Bundabah and all the land from these waterfront villages to the Tea Gardens road. He subdivided the estate which he called Pindimar City and advertised the blocks of land for sale. Lack of buyer interest due to the impact of the depression and a dearth of employment opportunities in the area ensured that these grand plans were destined to become a commercial failure. The proposal was later rejected and the city never eventuated.
In other pursuits the Phillips family enjoyed greater success. They were able to combine lucrative oyster farming with their other business interests of timber, cattle and the agistment of stock. Bullocks were used for logging and Frederick engaged the labour of Aboriginals from the Soldiers Point Mission who were transported to Pindimar by drogher for the duration of employment on the estate. They were housed in comfortable huts in Myall St, North Pindimar. A long wharf was constructed into the bay near Warri St, North Pindimar, to facilitate service boats to the area. This wharf had a trolley line over its full length with a large platform located halfway along the jetty which was later used as an unloading platform by the shark processing factory. The shark catching and processing station opened in 1927 and was later converted into an ice factory.
