The town was originally gazetted in 1910. Gold mining is its largest industry.
Gold was first discovered in the area in 1909 and the name "Bullfinch" was the name of one of the original leases issued. The Bullfinch mine closed in 1921, but other mines opened during a boom following World War II.
In 1932 the Wheat Pool of Western Australia announced that the town would have two grain elevators, each fitted with an engine, installed at the railway siding.
