Goomalling is a townsite in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia 45 kilometres north-north-east of Northam, Western Australia. The name Goomalling was first shown for a spring found by explorers Hillman and Lefroy in 1846. Hillman noted on his plan "rich grassy country" and squatters subsequently moved into the area. George Slater was the first in the Goomalling area, establishing a property around Goomalling Spring in the early 1850s.
The Goomalling Agricultural Hall was opened in 1898 by John Dempster MLC who stood in for the Commissioner of Crown Lands,George Throssell, who was unable to make it to the event.
When the Northam – Goomalling railway line was opened in 1902 the government decided to establish a townsite at Goomalling. It was gazetted in 1903. Goomalling is an Aboriginal word which means "the place of the silver-grey possum". Goomal is the noongar word for this possum.
