Historical information

Bardoc is an abandoned town in the Goldfields-Esperance region of Western Australia. It is situated between Kalgoorlie and Menzies along the Goldfields Highway. The town was gazetted on 3 June 1896. By 1908, however, no mines were in operation and the town was effectively deserted. In 1911 the police station was closed. In 1914 the areas was flooded and the few remaining residents received provision from Broad Arrow .
