With over 80% of the shire being comprised of national park and forestry and steeped in history, the town offers many items of interest for the visitor, and is a great place to make your base from which to visit the entire South West region.

Manjimup Attractions

Diamond Tree Fire Tower • Tree Towers
The tree towers are one of the great attractions in the South West region, established by the Forests Department for early detection of forest fires. The ‘Diamond Tree’ is a giant Karri tree located 10 km south of Manjimup on the South Western Highway. This is one of three existing climbing trees in the Southern Forests and was used as a fire lookout during the summer from 1941 to 1973. It is still used to support aerial surveillance. It has a wooden viewing platform, originally built in 1939, which is about 51 metres up, offering spectacular views over the top of the trees.
Shannon National Park
• Located 53 km south-east of Manjimup, is the Shannon National Park, set in some magnificent karri country.
