Manjimup Historical Society

A historic hamlet within the Manjimup Heritage Park creates an interesting setting in which to bring Manjimup’s history to life. A settler’s cottage, a doctor’s surgery, a school building, a police station and lock-up are some of the historic and replica buildings which make up the hamlet. These objects in the buildings are managed by the Manjimup Historical Society which collects, records and conserves the history of the local community and houses its archives in an impressive building on the edge of the Heritage Park.


151 Giblett Street
Manjimup WA 6258

Opening Hours

9am-5pm. However, some parts of the Hamlet are by appointment only so please call (08) 9777 1758.
