Manjimup, WA

The town of Manjimup is a regional centre for the largest shire in the south west of Western Australia. It possesses areas of ecological, historical, agricultural, commercial and industrial interest.

The rich red soil of the district will support almost any agricultural crop and most of the State’s potatoes, onions and cauliflowers are grown by local farmers.

Over 80 percent of the shire is composed of National Park and forestry. Within a short drive of the town you can visit the King Jarrah, climb the Diamond Tree Lookout Tower and visit the Four Aces. Water attractions include historic Fonty’s Pool, the Donnelly River and Glenoran Pool.

For those interested in the history of the area, a visit to the Dingup Church, the Pioneer Cairn, and One Tree Bridge are a must. Free tours of the local mills are available at nominated times and the milling town of Deanmill enables you to step back into the early days of the district.

The Tourist Centre is housed in a large mud brick and shingle roofed building attached to the Timber Park Complex. Other attractions within the Park are the state Timber Museum, the historical Hamlet, which contains many relocated (for preservation) buildings from within the shire, the steam museum, a blacksmith’s forge and a craft and coffee shop.

The variety of accommodation available reflects the diversity of the area. There are a number of caravan parks, hotel and motels, bed and breakfast facilities, guesthouses, chalets, cottages and villages as well as backpacker accommodation. You can stay in town or absorb the country atmosphere on a farm or in a village.

You will not be disappointed with Manjimup, jewel of the south west, gateway to the tall timber.
