Manjimup is a town in the South-West Boojarah region (the traditional land of the Wardandi and Bibulmun/Piblemen Noongar language groups) of Western Australia.
The town was named for the Noongar words “Manjin” (a broad-leafed edible reed) and “up” (meeting place, or place of). Manjimup was first settled by timber cutter Thomas Muir, who took up land near the present town site in 1856. It was declared a town in 1910.
