In 1925 the Werrimull-Meringur railway line was opened. This train service provided the many needs of the growing Millewa community.

In 1926, land was subdivided and the Meringur township was born. As the farmers arrived, full of enthusiasm and energy, the town slowly grew to a population of approximately 150 people.

It was a thriving community with an open air palais theatre, general store, post office, milk bar, tea rooms, bakehouse, dressmaker, mechanics shop, hardware store, guest house, hairdresser, saddlery store, greengrocer, tobacconist, timber yard, blacksmith, butchers, billard room, ice works, hall and a school formed the Meringur township, catering to the requirements of the district families.

After the reallocation of the farms in 1948, the Millewa area decreased in population.

Visit the Millewa Pioneer VillageToday the Meringur township has a population of 20 and the only business still operating is the Meringur Post Office, which services the outlying western Millewa farms. Meringur has a wonderful Millewa Pioneer Village which has many original buildings and artifacts from the Millewa pioneers.
