DESCRIPTION

 

Myalup is located between Mandurah and Australind on the coast. It is another small quiet seaside community with good beaches and good seasonal fishing.

North of the town is Yalgorup National Park that is an important bird sanctuary and home to a large colony of Stromatolites.

 

HISTORY

 

The name comes from the Aboriginal language and means 'place of the paperbark.' The site was gazetted as late as 1972. Other spellings that have appeared over the years include Miellup and Myerlup.

Early settlers in the area included the Crampton and Manning families. Attempts at farming were not hugely successful as a number of trace elements were missing from the soil. It was not until the mid 20th century that the proper use of fertilisers was understood and from that time farming has been more successful.
