The area was settle for farming in the early 1900s and by 1906 the local progress association requested that land be set aside for a townsite. A railway through the area had been considered but did not eventuate so the land remained uninhabited. A school was built in the area in 1967 and the townsite was eventually gazetted in 1971.
The town takes its name from the Dale River, which had been named after Ensign Robert Dale who, in 1831, was the first European to discover the river.
