About our park

The perfect place where everyone can have fun and learn about our history

The Manjimup Heritage Park started as a wildlife sanctuary in 1964 until in 1977, the State Timber Museum was built on an adjoining reserve. Since taking on management of the Reserve in in 1986, the Shire of Manjimup have developed the Park into a key tourism precinct in Manjimup and a central community space for local residents.

The Park is a community owned facility that is managed in partnership between community groups, volunteers and the Shire of Manjimup. The Shire’s Manjimup Heritage Park Advisory Committee provides guidance on the Park’s activities.

All funds raised in the Park from venue hire, museum fees and donations are cycled directly back into the Park’s operations to ensure it remains accessible to both locals and visitors.
