Description:
Regans Ford is a small town located in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia, about north of Perth in the Shire of Dandaragan.

History

The town is named after a ford over the Moore River, which has appeared on maps since at least 1880. The ford was in turn named after Edward Regan, a shepherd in the area in the 1860s, who acquired land near the ford in the 1870s. According to some sources, Regan was contracted to build the crossing with Aboriginal labour.

In 1880, the land adjacent to the ford was reserved as a watering place for travellers and stock. In 1968, during planning for a new road from Gingin to Eneabba, it was suggested that the land be used as a townsite.
