Borden - Cities, Towns and Localities
Part of the Great Southern region, Borden is between Gnowangerup and Ongerup, located 400 km south east of Perth and 120 km north east of Albany.

The name was proposed by the Secretary for Railways as the name of a siding on the then new Tambellup-Ongerup Railway. The town was gazetted in 1916. It was name after the Right Honourable Sir Robert Laird Borden, who was the 8th Prime Minister of Canada (1911-1920), although there is no record as to why. This is confirmed because the next siding on the railway line (now closed) was named Laurier, after the Right Honourable Sir Wilfred Laurier, who was the 7th Prime Minister of Canada (1896-1911).
