219 kilometres east of Perth

East of Kellerberrin on the Great Eastern Highway is small town of Doodlakine.

The current town is the second location for Doodlakine.

It was first gazetted as a town in 1891 five kilometres north of the current site on the old route to the Goldfields adjacent a good supply of water. A few years later the railway reached the town but was sited five kilometres to the south so the town moved to be adjacent the railway line.

Between 1893 and 1894 Doodlakine was the terminus of the railway and prospectors going to the fields transferred from the train to a coach, horse or walked from here to Coolgardie and the Yilgarn fields.

Doodlakine is a Golden Pipeline Heritage Trail site.
